Lee qualified as an RGN in 1988. His early years were spent working within general medicine, A&E and intensive units in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.
 
In 1998 Lee trained as a Nurse Practitioner and at the same time developed a Preoperative assessment service in the UK.  He developed this role successfully which resulted in a service expansion and the training of further nurse practitioners and support staff. Whilst in post Lee presented at the National Day Surgery conference in 2000 at York about this service and was published in the Nursing Standard in 2002.
 
Lee co-founded A & L Healthcare Consultancy in 2003 to provide clinical training & consultancy services primarily in Preoperative assessment and Advanced Skill-sets for Nurses. Their company has helped organisations to develop their clinical teams and expertise.
 
One of Lee's main passions is to promote preoperative assessment as a dynamic speciality and encourage staff to develop clinical expertise through training and mentorship. 
 
In 2014 Lee co-authored National Training Standards and competencies within the field of preoperative assessment on behalf of the Preoperative Association. Lee now assists with the design and delivery of the Preoperative Association Competency-based training programme which is primarily aimed at Nurses and allied health professionals. He recently contributed to the new edition Pudners Surgical Nursing textbook on Preoperative Assessment and continues to facilitate clinical skills workshops at National Conference. Lee trains both nationally and internationally. He has been board member of the Preoperative Association since 2006.
 
Lee maintains some clinical practice as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner/Nurse Prescriber in Primary care.
