Mr Hill has held consultant appointments at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, St Bartholomew’s Hospital and the Princess Alexandra Hospital. He undertook his initial training in orthopaedics at St Thomas’ Hospital and subsequently on the Percivall Pott training programme. His work on paediatric orthopaedics and limb reconstruction, including non-union and malunion problems in adults and children, has been published widely.
Mr Hill has a national and international reputation, and has lectured both in the UK and abroad. He was made Honorary Associate Professor at University College London (UCL) in 2021 and has worked in a mentorship and training role at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children since 2020.

His private practice is based at the Portland Hospital and whilst this has now been taken over by Mr Jonathan Wright and Miss Sarah McMahon, Mr Hill continues in a consultative role to provide a seamless transfer of existing patients and advice on rare or difficult conditions.
