Mr Black graduated from WITS medical school in Johannesburg in 1998 and after two years working in Pietermaritzburg in Natal he moved to the UK in 2001. He spent two years at St Mary's Hospital and Imperial College performing research under the supervision of Lord Darzi and John Wolfe into training surgeons using virtual reality and simulation. The focus of this work was on improving the safety and efficacy of surgical training for which he was awarded a Doctorate in 2009.
Following this, he completed his vascular training holding posts as a registrar at Ashford and St Peters Hospital, Frimley Park Hospital, Guys and St Thomas Hospital and St George's Hospital. He was first appointed as a consultant in 2010. He was awarded the fellowship of the European Board of Vascular Surgery in 2011.
Mr Black's main NHS appointment is at Guys and St Thomas' Hospital. He was a Consultant Vascular Surgeon and Honorary Senior Lecturer at St George's Vascular Institute, St George's Hospital, London from 2010 until 2014. He also held an Honorary Consultant post at Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust during this time. While at St Georges, in addition to offering a full vascular practice, he established and led the Deep Venous Reconstruction service offering intervention for patients with acute and chronic DVT. This quickly grew to become one of the largest such practices in Europe. In 2014 he was approached by St Thomas' Hospital to move and run their Deep Venous and Lymphoedema service.
