Dr Taylor qualified from Bristol University in 1992, following which he trained in anaesthesia in the South West, Wessex and Australia. He was appointed to a Consultant post in Portsmouth in 2003.

As a group, the Portsmouth Anaesthetic Group, are able to provide 24/7 on-call cover for their patients, ensuring that Consultant Anaesthetic input is always available. They provide a comprehensive care package covering the entire perioperative period and the preoperative assessment service optimises patients prior to surgery.
Dr Taylor has been practising ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia since 2006, a technique that lends itself to many aspects of anaesthetic care and forms an integral part in many perioperative analgesia regimes. He has extensive experience in this area of anaesthetic practice. Dr Taylor works with a broad range of surgical specialties in his private practice, which reflects his NHS role.
Dr Taylor is married with three children. His hobbies include fishing, cricket, dinghy sailing, cycling and running.
