Mr. Ashley Simpson
BA(Hons) MBBS MSc MA(Cantab) FRCS(Orth)
I am currently a Locum Trauma & Orthopaedic Consultant in Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Trust, having recently achieved the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT). I have a planned career in soft tissue surgery and arthroplasty of the shoulder and knee. I had secured a post-CCT research fellowship in peripheral nerve injuries and upper limb trauma at Stanford University, California to begin in September 2021, however this was disrupted due to the Covid pandemic.
I will be taking leave from my Locum Consultant Post in order to pursue a subspeciality clinical fellowship in Sports Surgery in Perth, Australia, beginning in January 2022. This will be followed by a visiting fellowship focusing on surgery of the elbow with Professor Roger van Riet in Antwerp, Belgium before returning to London to take up a substantive Consultant post.
I am a fitness and sport enthusiast which ties in nicely with my interest in sports surgery, and I enjoy windsurfing, tennis and playing the piano. I am proud to be a previous Secretary of the Percivall Pott Club and endeavour to support this excellent training programme throughout my professional career.
