Keir Shiels Profile
At 28, Keir is the oldest of the group. Incredibly, he already had a Neuro Science and Psychology degree under his belt before deciding to train as a doctor. Once his medical school place was confirmed, Keir jacked in his job as a Neuro Psychologist to manage a wine merchants, professionally running courses, tutoring and of course, tasting.
Now in his second year of the foundation programme, Keir will be based on the surgical ward, in plastics, working alongside Katherine.
A firm believer that a good bedside manner goes hand in hand with patient recovery, he advocates really getting to know the patients and is not afraid to pull others up who don't.
Despite his demanding workload, Keir has a packed social life, and he has just finished a stint in a local production of 'Guys and Dolls, plays piano and reckons he can give Anton Du Beke a run for his money ballroom dancing.
