From 2005 - 2011, I was an executive committee member of the British Society for Dermatological Surgery and in 2006 I organised the largest and most successful annual surgical workshop of the previous 25 years. This meeting was held over 3 days and hosted over 120 delegates being taught hands on surgery on pig belly and trotters by nearly 30 faculty members.

I was elected Treasurer of the Society from 2009 - 2011.

In 2010 I was awarded the Metal Man / "Surgeon of Steel" award by the Society for inspirational contributions to the Society's affairs.
