Alison Tyas

I took over from Emma to cover her maternity leave, so will be around until January 2020. I am a respiratory registrar. I am enjoying strengthening the JDB and raising its profile during my time as Chief Registrar. Outside of work I enjoy the outdoors and I am a slow, but hopefully improving amateur runner!

Jo Corrado

David Saunders


Dave has now left the JDB to become a consultant here at Leeds, but this is what he said of the JDB: “I am an ST3 in radiology, currently undergoing sub-specialty training in diagnostic neuroradiology.  Prior to this I completed basic surgical training and a couple of years as a research vascular surgical registrar.

My main interest lies with teaching, but over the past few years I have become increasingly interested in management and the concept of quality improvement.

My aim through my role with the JDB is to combine those interests and be a part of creating a greater post-graduate mentoring platform whilst also improving my own knowledge and skill base for on-going QI projects within my own directorate.”
