Background Information 
Professional profile:
Mr Ian Arthur qualified from the University of Wales College of Medicine in 1985. He was accepted as a member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) in 1991 and was awarded a doctorate in medicine by the University of Southampton in 1994 for work in the field of reproductive endocrinology and his thesis looking at the endometrial response to gonadotrophin and hormone replacement treatments. He has recently been elected to fellowship by the RCOG having been deemed to have advanced the science and practice of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

Before moving to Blackpool in March 1999 his special interests led him to aquire additional skills in minimal access gynaecological surgery and urogynaecology. He was appointed to his present post in Blackpool to develop the general gynaecological service in these areas.

He combines these special interest skills with a wide experience in general gynaecology and a philosophy of patient focused care. He feels strongly that women should be provided with a full explanation of all treatment options and that their involvement in the decision making process is central to a successful outcome.
Personal profile:
Ian brought his young family from darkest Yorkshire to the bright lights of Blackpool. They keep him and his wife busy and entertained. His eldest daughter provides a healthy mix of good and bad examples for his younger twins. Ian enjoys most outdoor activities, cycles and plays squash to keep fit.
