This position is split. Dr Nicky Simler is a Consultant Physician based at Papworth Hospital. Dr Clare Sander is a Consultant Physician based at Addenbrooke's Hospital.
Dr Nicky Simler
I am Nicky Simler and I share the TPD role for Respiratory Medicine. I graduated from Manchester Medical School and stayed in the Manchester region for my junior training. I took time out to do an MD Thesis in Interstitial Lung Disease and gained valuable bronchoscopy experience in the Wythenshawe Lung Transplant Centre. I then completed my respiratory training in the North West Thames Deanery passing through the Royal Brompton Hospital. My first Consultant post was at Hinchingbrooke Hospital starting in 2006 where I worked as a general Chest Physician as well as doing ILD Specialist work at Papworth Hospital. I have now (August 2019) moved to Royal Papworth hospital on a full time basis to do more Specialist ILD work with an additional commitment to general respiratory work at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
I am passionate about providing a good learning environment for doctors in training and ensuring that the Eastern Deanery produces excellent respiratory physicians. We have a large number of trainees (currently 67) as we encourage out of programme time for research and other more focused training experiences such as fellowships. I am happy to be contacted by email (Nicola.firstname.lastname@example.org) or via Papworth switchboard if you would like to discuss coming to train in this region with us.
