Terry Skinner

ANAESTHETIST
Terry Skinner

Born in Exeter, I was educated in Australia and various schools in UK before entering Charing Cross Hospital Medical School from where I qualified as a doctor in 1982. Initially I worked in Hospitals in Devon and Norfolk as a junior doctor for 2 years until I joined the RAF in 1984. My first posting was to RAF St Mawgan, which was then an active flying station, as a general duties medical officer.

Later I entered specialist training to be an anaesthetist and trained and worked in a number of military and civilian hospitals in the UK, Germany, Cyprus and America. I became a Consultant in anaesthesia in 1995 and additionally specialised in pain medicine. I had postings to the Falkland Islands, and active service to conflicts in Iraq and Bosnia, as well as undertaking many aeromedical evacuation duties around the world.

I retired from the RAF in 2000 as a Wing Commander and Specialty Adviser in Pain to the then Medical Defence Services, with the desire to settle in the West Country and be near family again.

Since then I have worked at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust as a consultant in anaesthesia and pain management and for three years was the Divisional Director for Aanaesthesia, Pain and Intensive Care. I undertake anaesthesia and sedation for many operations and emergencies, and have been registered to undertake private anaesthetic work for over 20 years.

While a Devon boy at heart, I am married to a Cornish girl Belinda, a Senior Nurse Specialist. We have a large local family, 5 grown children, and enjoy many family pursuits, home design, dog walking and live in Perranporth with the best beach in Cornwall!
