I am a graduate of the University of Edinburgh and subsequently trained in general medicine to Registrar level in the UK and New Zealand before starting as a Specialist Registrar in oncology at Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology on the Wirral in 1994. After a period of post-FRCR training at Christie Hospital, Manchester I was appointed as Consultant Clinical Oncologist at New Cross Hospital, Wolverhampton in 2000 with visiting sessions at Kidderminster Hospital specialising in breast and colorectal cancers.
In addition to that I have a wealth of experience treating urological and upper gastro-intestinal cancers and has had a significant contribution to research within his sub-speciality interests.

Upper gastrointestinal cancer
I am married to Ruth, piano teacher and environmental educationalist, and in August 2014 we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. We have three children. Our two daughters are currently students of the arts at university and our son is in sixth form, a scientist - but without inclination towards medicine. I spend some of my free time wearing out my joints playing 5-a-side football and badminton. At weekends, whenever possible, we like to get out and about hill walking that I combine with my hobby, which is landscape photography. During occasional bouts of madness I sign up for cycling and walking challenges - the most recent being a bike ride across the Andes in Peru.Back to top
