“Mfazo came across as an excitable and knowledgeable character from the offset, which I have to say was a pleasant and welcoming surprise, given my previous experiences with consultants in other medical fields. I was encouraged by his openness, and willingness to answer all of my questions; which helped to allay my concerns and fears...which I must say 'I had plenty of' : )“

    After graduating with a 1st class degree from the University of Liverpool in 2002, Mr Hove began his career in Ophthalmology as a senior house officer in Eastbourne, followed by a rotation at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust. After obtaining his MRCOphth, Mr Hove then spent 2.5 years as a Cataract Research Fellow at Moorfields Eye Hospital, where he conducted research on multifocal lenses and achieved a MD qualification.

    Mr Hove did his registrar training on the North Thames Ophthalmology rotation, which included Moorfields Eye Hospital. During this time, he successfully completed his FRCOphth, achieved his Certificate of Completion of Training and is listed on the Specialist Register.

    Mr Hove also completed fellowships in Medical Retina and Cataracts and Eye Casualty at Moorfields Eye Hospital. Here, he also worked as a locum consultant in both Cataract and Eye Casualty service. Mr Hove then took up a post as a substantive consultant at the Western Eye Hospital, where he is also the lead for Eye Casualty.

    In 2017, Mr Hove gained the Certificate of Laser and Refractive surgery (CertLRS) from the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.
