Professional profile

After completing my degree and clinical training in Oxford I embarked on a career in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. I trained primarily in London and particularly in the South East Thames region with a year as a registrar in Australia. I was appointed as a consultant at Southend University Hospital in 2000 and have worked there ever since.

At Southend I have been involved in setting up the highly successful vulval service which runs regularly and have always seen a significant number of children and adolescents. I also set up an outpatient procedure clinic over 10 years ago and was involved in endometrial ablation from its inception at Southend.

Over the years I have developed a good rapport with colleagues from other specialties so that when the need arises, patients can be seen appropriately and quickly. Discussion of options for benign gynaecological conditions is essential for patients and I have an interest in these, particularly menstrual disturbance, menopausal issues, prolapse and incontinence issues.

I specialise in Benign gynaecology, Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology (not surgical), Outpatient gynaecological procedures, Hysteroscopic procedures including endometrial ablation, Menstrual disorders, Mirena insertion and removal of Mirenas and IUCDs, Menopausal disorders, Vulval skin conditions, Contraception advice, Pelvic floor problems including assessment and insertion of pessaries.

I welcome appropriate patients wishing to refer and pay for treatment themselves without the need for a GP letter of referral.

Personal Profile

I have a  daughter who is at University. We enjoy travelling and wildlife and I also enjoy cooking, reading, wine and history, with the trips encompassing our interests. As a single mother my life is always busy but I live it to the full and find all aspects rewarding. The other indulgence is our massive cat - a Norwegian Forest that thinks she's a dog.

With respect to my professional life I am known to be blunt and down-to-earth and believe that in the majority of circumstances I have a good rapport with patients.
