Dr Ben Timmis, Consultant Radiologist, is Lead Clinical Radiologist

Since qualifying as a doctor from St.Bartholomew's Hospital Medical College (University of London) in 1975, Dr Benjamin Timmis trained in general medicine for a number of years before starting higher training in diagnostic radiology in 1981.

He obtained his higher qualifications in radiology (DMRD and FRCR) before being appointed as a consultant radiologist, with a special interest in interventional and vascular radiology.

Within a year of appointment he was voted by colleagues to the Chair of the Division of Radiology, before becoming Chairman of the Hospitals Consultant Medical Committee.

He was appointed as joint Medical Director of the London Upright MRI scanning centre in April 2006.  Currently, Dr Timmis divides his time between his NHS appointment and private practice and has had extensive experience of Medical Management in both.
