Gavin is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Sunderland Royal Hospital and a private practice based in Washington. He has a special interest in limb reconstruction joint preserving and trauma surgery. He is a member of BOA, BSCOS, BLRS, ISHA and AAOS in addition to his NHS practice.
Gavin says: “Increasing challenges are being placed on the provision of orthopaedics services in the NHS and private sector. Mounting scrutiny, restriction, revalidation and patient demands has escalated complaints and promoted a litigious society. Maintaining and advancing a high standard of care remains challenging. For this a medical indemnity scheme like OTSIS that is responsive to and provides for the specialty of orthopaedics is essential.”
