Dr Cam Wareham-Adreani
Consultant Podiatric Surgeon
Dr Cam Wareham- Adreani qualified in New Zealand at the National School of Podiatry in the top 2% of his class. After an initial period of Internship post qualification in Wellington, he took an Associate role at ‘The Foot Clinic, in Canberra Australia under Paul Fleet, one of Australasia’s most well respected MSK Podiatrist. Having gained a solid grounding in Podiatry practice he moved to the UK and undertook his primary surgical exams whilst working in community and hospital posts covering general podiatric practice, biomechanics and Diabetes. He passed both the Diploma in Podiatric Surgery exams of the New Zealand College of Podiatric Surgery and the Fellowship exams in Surgery of the College of Podiatry (UK). He went on to take a teaching role at the Durham School of Podiatry whilst completing his Doctorate in Medical Science (Ulster) and additionally undertaking further training in the USA as a surgical resident/fellow. As a Senior Lecturer in Surgery, Cam moved south to the London Foot Hospital and UCL as a lecturer and latterly as a Consultant Podiatrist. Cam was instrumental as a member of the team in securing the home of the London School to its current base at UEL following the announcement of UCL’s intention to stop its delivery of the course, which remains one of Podiatry’s most controversial and most difficult service negotiations to date.
Cam soon became one of the Countries first Consultant Podiatrists which saw him heavily involved with the Department of Health’s AHP Consultant agenda during his employment at Camden PCT.
Following a move to Suffolk, he spent 6 years as a Consultant Podiatric Surgeon turning around the significantly ‘troubled’ unit. He was able to reduce the waiting list form 2 years, secured a budget of just under 1 million pounds and grew the staffing from 4 to 9 members. Following 3 TUPE negotiations and a final home with the community trust in South Essex, he eventually left Suffolk to move to London concentrating on practice in the independent sector, although still treating NHS patients and latterly re-joining the NHS in a specific capacity as a Consultant engaging in research in a surgical department.
Cam has always had a long standing interest in the interface between the Law and Medical Care. He has written a large number of reports for court, written reports on aspects of care for both internal and external NHS agencies and has also reported on care in the international legal jurisdictions in Scotland and New Zealand. He is an Expert Witness registered with UK Expert Witnesses and has undertaken training both specifically in the field of Expert Witness work and determination and compliments that training with an LLB from the University of London.
