Professional profile

I am an experienced and nationally regarded breast cancer and specialist surgeon in Bristol. I was appointed as a consultant breast surgeon in 1990 at Frenchay Hospital, where in 1996 I created the Frenchay Breast Care Centre, establishing the first One Stop Breast Clinic in the South West.

I developed my expertise in breast ultrasound and established the first breast ultrasound course for surgeons, and have co-authored Interventional Breast Ultrasound.

I led the centralisation of breast surgery in Bristol, which has brought together all of the breast services including breast screening into the new breast care centre at Southmead Hospital.

In addition I am an honorary lecturer in Surgery Universities of Bristol and East Anglia.

I have previously been the breast cancer clinical lead for NHS, past president of the Royal Society of Medicine, surgical advisor for quality in the NHS Breast Screening Programme South West. Medical director Avon, Somerset and Wiltshire Cancer Nerwork and associate medical director, North Bristol NHS Trust.

I run a one stop clinic at the Spire Bristol Hospital. I specialises in breast examination including simultaneous ultrasound, and the assessment and management of breast cancer risk. Further I also specialise in the management of breast pain, breast lumps.
