Mr Potter aims to provide care of the highest quality. He maintains this quality by regular audit of his outcomes as well as visiting, presenting and undertaking research with other surgeons both nationally and internationally. He regularly publishes his outcomes and techniques as a means of informing others of his results and providing transparency of his work for his patients. Mr Potter doesn’t work as an isolated surgeon. Where appropriate he works in teams to provide patients with specialists that provide overlapping skills to meet his patients’ needs.
