Mr Edward McKintosh

Associate Adviser


Edward works as a consultant neurosurgeon at the Royal London Hospital where he covers neurotrauma and general neurosurgery on call. The majority of his elective practice and research interest is in brain tumour surgery and neuroendoscopy.

Edward qualified from Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals and completed basic surgical training in south London. He was lucky enough to spend seven months researching Kuru in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea before completing a PhD researching surgical instrument sterilisation from CJD at the Institute of Neurology.

Edward did the majority of his higher specialist training in neurosurgery on the south London rotation, winning the Norman Dott Medal in the final FRCS(sn) exam, which in turn allowed him to spend time observing American neurosurgery, supported by the Barrow Foundation UK.

Edward was Clinical Director for Neurosciences, Stroke and Complex spine surgery and previously sat as a Medical Member on Employment Support Allowance Tribunals. Having spent two years in a University Air Squadron as a student followed by seven years in the Territorial Army, Edward continues to sit as a Medical Member on War Pensions Tribunals.
