More information about Mr Crawford
Developing the gynaecological cancer centre in Cambridge we have seen improvements in survival of over 30% over the last decade. I have worked with the RCOG developing a new curriculum for gynaecological oncology and the NHS cancer screening service as part of their quality control. I have been a council member of the British Gynaecological Cancer Society. I have worked with NICE on the cancer consideration panel and have set quality standards for care in ovarian cancer. I now am actively working with the Department of Health and NHS Improvement on a national project helping patients get better quicker, the enhanced recovery programme. This allows patients to be better informed about their surgery, better prepared for the procedure and to come through the operation with the best outcome leading to a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery.
I obtained my doctorate of medicine from the University of London having done my medical degree at Cambridge University. I am author on over 60 peer reviewed papers. I review for national and international journals. I have collaborated in research projects with grants totalling nearly three quarters of a million pounds. My areas of ongoing research are surgical and diagnostic techniques, human papilloma virus disease, genetics of cancer and population outcomes.
