Professional profile

Mr McAndrew qualified from St. George's Hospital Medical School, Tooting. He underwent Basic Surgical training in Yorkshire and undertook two years full time research in Sheffield. This was submitted as a thesis titled 'the Radiographic Classification of Callotasis' and an MD was awarded in 2004.

Mr McAndrew underwent Higher Surgical training in Trauma & Orthopaedics in the Wessex Region. He spent one year as the Ilizarov Fellow in Chertsey, Surrey undergoing sub-specialist training in trauma and limb reconstruction. He was appointed to the Royal Berkshire Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in July 2007 as a Locum Consultant Trauma Surgeon and took up his substantive post in November 2007. He brought the Ilizarov system to Reading and set up a limb reconstruction service undertaking complex trauma and deformity correction. He is the lead trauma surgeon with an interest predominantly in the lower limb.

Mr McAndrew is the Director of Trauma in the Trust and was part of the successful bid to have the Royal Berkshire Hospital designated a Trauma Unit. Since then he has continued to chair the Trauma Committee, (a multidisciplinary group that works to improve the care of trauma patients in Reading). He is the Orthopaedic representative of the Royal Berkshire Hospital to the Thames Valley Trauma Networks.

He was the Clinical Director for the Trauma and Orthopaedic service at the Royal Berkshire Hospital from January 2014 until 31 January 2017.
