Dr Reed-Poysden grew up in the South East of England and after completing his medical degree in 2003 at Cambridge University, joined the Oxford rotation for house jobs. Following some Emergency Medicine experience in Leeds, he went to Sydney to work in Cardiology before returning to the South West of England.
Following this, ten further years of Anaesthetic practice, gaining the FRCA and undertaking three Fellowships in Vascular, Perioperative and Airway Anaesthesia has enabled him to consolidate this experience into Perioperative medicine. He is also trained in a range of Regional Anaesthesia, including as sole technique, and incorporated this into his job plan with Orthopaedic lists. Following helping set up the Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) service at RCHT, he aims to contribute further to improving perioperative decision making and safety as the current Clinical Lead for the High Risk Shared Decision making service. He also organises the Teaching for local junior Anaesthetists for their professional exams.
Dr Reed-Poysden lives in Cornwall with his wife who is also a nurse at the Trust. In their spare time they are active members of a local church and love the outdoors, being by the sea, enjoying getting out and about to explore the county that they have grown to love over the last few years.
