He moved to Severn in 2017, having trained and worked in the North East and London regions, alongside time spent working in Africa and undertaking international retrieval work. Jon has an interest in perioperative medicine and has completed a linked fellowship and PGCert. He has an interest in education and regularly teaches on ALS and APLS alongside acting as course director for several programmes run through the foundation school.
