Mr Jonathan Simmons trained in medicine at St Bartholomew's Medical School in London. He graduated in 1997 and subsequently undertook his surgical training in London to become a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Following that, he undertook his specialist training in Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery in London teaching hospitals.

Jon undertook additional fellowships in upper and lower limb surgery and has extensive experience of cosmetic surgery. He worked within the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust when St Mary's Hospital went live with their Major Trauma Centre and was instrumental in setting up a plastic surgery service on the St Mary's site. Since then, he managed over 150 open fractures of the upper and lower limb along with countless other soft tissue and boney injuries (jointly managed with orthopaedic colleagues). His experience includes coverage of major incidents such as the London bombings, Soho bomb blast and Paddington rail crash.
Jon spends considerable teaching and training others and has been increasingly involved in improving patient outcomes. In his spare time, Jon enjoys spending time with his wife and 4 children, cycling, sailing and skiing.
