Naseer Ahmad, Vascular Surgeon, Manchester University Foundation Trust

Naseer is a vascular surgeon based at Manchester University Foundation Trust.  He performs the full range of vascular procedures including carotid, aneurysm and venous surgery but specialises in complex lower limb surgery that prevents an amputation.  He is the Clinical Director of both the Manchester Amputation Reduction Strategy (The MARS Project) and the Greater Manchester & East Cheshire Aneurysm Screening Programme and the Deputy Chief Clinical Information Officer of his hospital.  His award winning research interest is the inequality surrounding lower limb amputations.  His cross-sectoral roles are enabling him to develop ‘whole systems’ pathways i.e. those that harmonise Public Health, community and hospital services for patients with vascular disease.  His aim is to bring together and digitise siloed NHS services and is working with leaders across Manchester’s academic, clinical, strategic, financial and digital areas to drive this forward
