From the outset of Dr Connor’s medical career he has been proud to serve in the Royal Navy and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. He accredited as a consultant in 2003, having trained in Wessex, London and Australia. As a consultant he has worked predominantly in Portsmouth, though he has spent a year and a half at the military hospital in Cyprus.
Similar to any anaesthetist working at a District General Hospital, his anaesthetic practice is varied and covers all specialties. However, with his military background, Dr Connor has a bias towards emergencies, plastic surgery and orthopaedics, including trauma – having had several military tours overseas. Dr Connor is a regional anaesthesia expert (placing local anaesthetic near the nerves to numb specific areas of the body) and lead for regional anaesthesia within the military.
Working within the supportive environment of an anaesthetic group provides the best environment for patient care, with 365 day a year on call cover for all private patients, and a group belief in providing the best care for patients with individualised treatment for patients’ specific needs and wishes.
Dr Connor’s personal profile could be summed up with the single word, cyclist (aka mamil). He cycles further than he drives every year! His wonderful tolerant wife (a local GP) has gone down the ‘can’t beat them join them’ route and they now cycle a tandem regularly, in search of the best cake stops in Hampshire. Please pass carefully.
