Mr Graham Hill completed his basic medical training in Manchester in 1985. While training as an undergraduate, he joined the Royal Navy as a cadet and began active service in 1986, after qualifying and completing house jobs in Plymouth and Blackpool. He spent his first two years performing general duties as the Squadron medical officer for the Second Frigate Squadron, completing two tours in the Gulf of Oman. Following this, he commenced surgical training, earning his Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1996, which enabled him to begin Orthopaedic training. After a two-year attachment to HMS Ark Royal, he trained in Orthopaedics in Plymouth, Exeter, and Oxford before moving to Australia for a general sports fellowship in Melbourne in 1999.

Mr Hill became a substantive consultant in the military in 2000, working at the Royal Hospital Haslar and specialising in shoulder and knee surgery. After a merger with the NHS, he joined Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, working there until 2015. During this period, he undertook multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as short tours on Aircraft Carriers and the RFA Argus, the Royal Navy Hospital Ship. His final deployment was to Sierra Leone, where he served as the clinical director for the RFA Argus during the Ebola outbreak, contributing to the UK’s efforts to control the disease.

Following his retirement from the Royal Navy, Mr Hill began working part-time for PPG in 2019, focusing exclusively on knee surgery, including full and partial knee replacements and some soft tissue work. He enjoys family activities such as walking and spending time with his grandchildren. Having undergone bilateral knee replacements himself, he offers a unique perspective as both a surgeon and a patient.
