Dr Phil Young
I am a Consultant in Critical Care Medicine & Anaesthesia at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust and was a Consultant in the Royal Navy prior to joining the NHS. I have been a Consultant for 22 years and in addition to my clinical work I have extensive experience of clinical management having been a Clinical Director and Associate Medical Director.
In the Royal Navy I served on surface ships and submarines and deployed all around the world on operations. My final post was as Principal Medical Officer on HMS Illustrious, at that time the fleet flagship.
In Portsmouth I set up a follow up service for patients discharged from Critical Care and I retain a close interest in the problems faced by patients after critical care. I also have an interest in medical ethics and sit on our Clinical Ethics Committee.
When not working I enjoy gardening and keeping an old VW campervan going.
