About Mr Mackie
I studied medicine at University College London and entered service with the Royal Navy. After a period of general medical duties, I specialised in urology, undertaking an MSc in Urology as well as an MD in Biomedical Sciences.
With an interest in research, I completed theses on chemotherapy agents for urological cancers. During specialist training, I undertook a two year fellowship in minimal access surgery and renal stone disease in Edinburgh and Sydney, following which I was appointed as Consultant Urological Surgeon to the Defence Medical Services in Portsmouth.
In 2015, I retired from full-time military service to take up an NHS post in East Sussex and have developed a general urological service with a sub-specialist interest in minimal access surgery for renal stone disease.
The services I provide at Benenden Hospital include general urology, endourology and renal stones, male and female lower urinary tract symptoms.
I am married with four children and enjoy sailing, mountaineering and outdoor pursuits.
