Dr Rob Tuffin

I obtained my medical degree in 2001 from the University of Leeds’ Medical School and following this undertook training rotations in medicine, anaesthesia and intensive care in London and Yorkshire. I obtained my dual Certificate of Completion of Training in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine in 2013 and was appointed to my Consultant post here in Harrogate shortly after.

I have been the Clinical Lead for Intensive Care Medicine since January 2015.

Outside of work I’m a keen triathlete and gardener.
