Michelle Le Cheminant

I studied pre-clinical medicine at Newnham (2003 matriculation) before completing clinical studies at King’s College London.


I currently split my time between my career as a Locum Consultant in Anaesthesia at University College London Hospital, and family life at home in Guernsey. My sub-specialist interests are paediatric and obstetric anaesthesia.


I am committed to improving anaesthesia safety worldwide. In 2017 I spent 6 months in Zambia as a Visiting Lecturer with the Zambia Anaesthesia Development Project. I am also a volunteer faculty anaesthetist with Orbis International. Recent projects with Orbis have included training doctors in China, Mongolia and Malawi.


I’m happy to offer advice on medical careers and developing world work. But also on balancing a chronic health condition with studies/career, an area in which I have considerable personal experience!
