Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
Simon Moyes qualified from The Middlesex Hospital in 1982. During his time as a medical student it was obvious to him that he wanted to become a surgeon. His first house job was with the Queen’s Orthopaedic Surgeon, Sir Rodney Sweetnam, at his top teaching hospital. Following this, he went to Cambridge to do a trauma rotation for a year before returning to London to study for his primary FRCS, the first part of the Fellowship of The Royal College of Surgeons.
After achieving this, he commenced in 1985 a surgical SHO rotation based at St Bartholomew’s Hospital whereby he rotated through The National Hospital for Nervous Diseases, Queen Square, amongst other central London hospitals. He then spent one year at Cheltenham General Hospital gaining considerable operative experience in general vascular and neurological surgery, also passing his General Surgical Fellowship, the “FRCS” at the same time.
Following this, Mr Simon Moyes then returned to London to commence his specific orthopaedic surgical training at The Westminster Hospital as an Orthopaedic Surgical Registrar. He spent two years on this programme before obtaining a Senior Registrar’s rotation out of The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. This he commenced in 1989.
He also won a research fellowship that allowed him to take six months out of his training programme at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital to work at the Clinical Research Centre in Northwick Park Hospital. Whilst the Senior Registrar at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, he was able to rotate through other leading centres of excellence, including Great Ormond Street Hospital and University College Hospital.
Mr Moyes was one of the first Senior Registrars in the country to sit the New Specialist exit exam for orthopaedic surgeons, the intercollegiate FRCS Orth, which he sat and passed in 1991. He then continued on his rotation and became a lecturer in Orthopaedics at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital – listed as one of the top 10 specialist hospitals in the UK and the leader in Orthopaedics. Also during this time he had organised visiting fellowships in the Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney and the Southern California Orthopaedic Institute in Los Angeles.
Simon Moyes took up a post of Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at UCL Hospitals in London in 1994 with a special interest in arthroscopic surgery in sports medicine. He went into full time private practice in 1997 and continues this.

“Many thanks for seeing me. The injection in the side of the ankle appears to have worked well. It feels great to be pain free and able to walk at a high speed again.”
