Background

Dr David Shipway is a consultant physician with a specialist interest in perioperative medicine, assisting surgical teams to look after patients whose surgery is complicated by their other medical problems, age or overall frailty. His work involves helping patients make informed decisions about surgery by comprehensively assessing them before their operation, and then making surgery safer by working closely with the surgeon as a medical specialist embedded within their team.

Dr Shipway trained at Oxford University before coming to London for postgraduate training. His background is in general internal medicine and geriatric medicine, and he completed a fellowship in perioperative medicine for older patients at Guy's and St Thomas' before taking up his position at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.

His special interests include frailty in the older surgical patient, comprehensive geriatric assessment of the older surgical patient and service development to meet the needs of older surgical patients.
