Dr Paul Hancock
Paul started out in the emergency department as an accident and emergency nurse in 2003 before going on to retrain in medicine. He trained as a doctor in Manchester before returning to the West Midlands to continue his training.
Paul currently works at UHNM as a Consultant in Emergency Medicine with a subspecialty interest in Paediatric Emergency Medicine.
With a love of motorbikes, Paul manages to mix his hobby with work and often provides medical cover at motorbike road racing meetings. Working on a race track in a trauma scenario has provided lots of experience of working under pressure.
He said: "A typical day in our department is hard to describe as it is so varied, from minor illnesses and injuries to major trauma and critical illnesses. However, despite how busy our department is, I know that I'm surrounded by one of the best teams in emergency medicine."
