Rajiv came to the UK in 1992 and worked in Norwich as a surgical trainee for the Royal Free/ RNOH Registrar/Senior Registrar rotation and completed his MCh from Liverpool as an external candidate. He obtained a Consultant post with Doncaster/Bassetlaw NHS trust in 1998 but left to pursue his current post at The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust.
