About Eric A. Nicholls, Consultant Paediatric Surgeon.

Eric A. Nicholls: Personal Statement

MBBS (1985 UWA), FRCS

I have been a consultant paediatric surgeon and British Association of Paediatric Surgery (BAPS) Council member for over 21 years and have endeavoured to make a contribution not only towards the care of children, but also towards the excellence and development of the Profession.

My wife is a GP partner in Putney. We have 4 children at university and an old yellow Labrador who needs two walks a day.

For over 4 years, I was training/education lead and STC representative at St George's Hospital. I was lead clinician for almost 6 years and was chairman of the SGH Children's Surgery Group for over 7 years.

I remain a full time paediatric surgeon at St George's Hospital and also care for children at the Royal Marsden Hospital and the Royal Surrey County Hospital.

I represented BAPS on the Children's Committee of the BMA and on the Intercollegiate Specialty Exam Board (ISB) for over 5 years. I have been an examiner and most recently, have been privileged to have been the Chairman of the ISB. During my time as Chairman I sat on the JCIE and I also attended the SAC meetings. I am an examiner assessor for the JCIE.

At present, I am the BAPS Representative to and a Council member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. I am chairman of the Children's Surgery Forum RCS Eng. and also sit on the Executive of BAPS.
