During my appointment at Southampton University Hospitals my specialist interests have been in the surgical treatment of colorectal cancer, particularly sphincter-preserving operations for rectal cancer and for the surgical treatment of malignant melanoma offering a sub-regional service.

My administrative positions include lead clinician for cancer services for the central South coast network.
