DVM, Dipl ECVN
Paul graduated from Cambridge in 1987 and then spent 6 years in mixed practice in Yorkshire and Suffolk. In 1993 he gained the RCVS certificate in small animal orthopaedics and went on to develop a referral centre for orthopaedics and neurology in his home county of Essex.
Paul gained the European Diploma in Veterinary Neurology in 2014, and in 2016 took up his current post of Principal Clinical Neurologist at the Queen's Veterinary School Hospital in the Department of Veterinary Medicine. The neurology service has grown rapidly over the last few years, and currently employs 3 specialist neurologists as well as a resident in training and service intern. Paul's main areas of interest continue to be in the management of canine spinal cord injury specifically intervertebral disc disease, and he has published review articles in 2017 and 2018 on the role of intervertebral disc fenestration. Despite having a mainly clinical role, Paul manages to combine research and teaching interests with the steadily increasing clinical caseload at QVSH.
Paul has lectured widely both nationally and internationally, and greatly enjoys the teaching aspect of his current role and involvement with veterinary students and residents, as well as working within an experienced team of specialists.
