John Burgess


ECVO Ophthalmology Resident (Specialist in Training)

John graduated from the University of Pretoria, South Africa in 2017. After 6 months of working in general practice, John moved to the UK to start a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at a busy referral hospital in Manchester. Following completion of the internship in 2019, John returned to general practice and locumed at various practices throughout the north-west. 

John’s main area of clinical interest is ophthalmology, and in March 2020 he joined The Ralph to pursue this interest further through a specialist residency training program.

In his spare time, John enjoys playing various sports, spending time outdoors fishing or hiking (weather permitting!), and playing with his Netherland dwarf rabbit, Ollie.
