Originally from the North West, Mr Sloan studied Medicine at the University of Wales College of Medicine, graduating in 1999. After undertaking his basic surgical training in South Wales and working at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham he returned to the North West for his Specialist Orthopaedic training rotation. After successfully gaining the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (Trauma and Orthopaedics) in 2008 he was awarded his Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training and placed on the Specialist Register in 2010.

During his training, he was recognized by his peers and awarded the ‘Trainee of the Year’ in 2009. During his final year of training, he undertook a Senior Fellowship in Primary & Revision Arthroplasty Surgery at Wrightington Hospital. This was under the supervision of two of the UK’s leading Arthroplasty Surgeons, Professor Martyn Porter and Professor Peter Kay.

After a short travelling fellowship to the United States, he took up his position as a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust in November 2010. His areas of interest are Trauma, Primary and Revision Arthroplasty of the hip and knee and arthroscopic surgery of the knee.

Mr Sloan has held several leadership positions in the trust including Quality and Safety Lead for the Surgical and Anaesthetic Division. He has led on many projects including the development of the nationally recognized hip and knee school and the introduction of Advanced Nurse Practitioners to the Orthopaedic department. He was appointed as the Lead Medical Examiner for the Trust in November 2019 and has led the development of this new service, which scrutinises deaths within the Trust. In this role, he works closely alongside the senior leadership team in the trust and the Senior Coroner.

Mr Sloan is a keen educator and is heavily involved in both undergraduate and postgraduate education. He successfully completed the PGCE module for medical education, awarded by the University of Chester. He is a recognized Clinical Supervisor and Educational Supervisor for Orthopaedic Trainees. The Northwest Orthopaedic Training Association awarded him the ‘Trainer of the Year’ prize in 2019, recognizing his contribution and dedication to training. He holds the position of Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at both UCLAN and Lancaster Medical School.

Mr Sloan has a strong interest in research, having many publications in national and international peer-reviewed journals as well as having his work presented widely at local, national and international meetings.

Away from Orthopaedics, Mr Sloan enjoys spending time with his family, watching Manchester United and trying to relive his youth by playing cricket in the summer. He also enjoys playing the trombone.
