Professional profile

I have been a consultant urological surgeon for the last 24 years. My broad training urological and general surgical has enabled me to deliver an evidence based general adult urological practice. I have worked in a spinal cord injury centre and have a special interest in bladder dysfunction and urodynamics. I was instrumental in the acquisition of a laser for the treatment of stones in the urinary track and the provision of trans rectal ultrasound scanning for the investigation of men with raised PSA and prostate cancer, both procedures in which I am proficient. I was a research fellow in Cardiff for two years working in the field of male erectile dysfunction.

I am able to practice throughout the whole of adult urological practice. My specialist areas are within the field of urological cancer management, urological stones and bladder dysfunction. My experience in urodynamics has enabled me to offer the whole range of therapies for urinary incontinence; in females from posterior tibial nerve stimulation, urethral bulking and tapes to colposuspension.

Over the last 23 years I have performed the majority of urological procedures in adult urological practice. These range from the common minor scrotal and genital operations (eg circumcision, hyrocoeles) to more complex ones involved in female incontinence (eg tapes), male prostate problems (eg TURP), male infertility (eg vasectomy reversal). Prior to the cancer services re-organisation I performed radical cystectomy (removal of the bladder for cancer), and removal of kidneys for cancerous growths. I am exposed to emergency urology and obstetric trauma regularly, being involved in repairing bladder, vaginal and ureteric damage.

I am the lead for audit and clinical governance for the urology department at Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The role entails ensuring that the trust governance structures are adhered to by the urology unit, and any national guidelines e.g NICE are adopted. A monthly meeting of the governance department and leads is attended by myself. Audit of our practice is essential and I am charged with ensuring regular audits are produced.

I am clinical lead for urology at Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This involves ensuring the day to day working of the unit is efficient e.g acting as the first point of contact for the unit with regard to other units in the trust and the trust management and organising annual leave for the medical staff. I am lead for urological cancers at Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. In this role I attend local and regional meetings in order to ensure national guidelines are being followed both as regards treatment regimes and targets. I am the educational supervisor for a number of junior medical staff. I have to undertake three meetings during the junior doctors placement to set standards and monitor progress as well as being available to give advice at any time. I am a fully trained appraiser and am responsible for the annual appraisal of eight consultant colleagues.

I am also the urology lead for endoscopy, much of urological diagnostic work involves the use a flexible cystoscope placed under local anaesthesia into the bladder. I sit on the endoscopy user committee to ensure representation of the unit.

Personal Profile

Born in Western Australia, I studied Medicine at Liverpool University, qualifying in 1978. I underwent post graduate training in Liverpool and Bath, gaining my fellowship of the Royal College Surgeons (F.R.C.S Eng) in 1984. Registrar training ensued in Birmingham and 2 years research in Cardiff with granting of a Master of Surgery degree (Ch.M.) from Liverpool University in 1990.

I entered a urology training programme and passed the FRCS (Urol) in 1992 and was certified trained in urology and appointed consultant urological surgeon to Warrington Hospitals in 1993.

I am married, live on the Wirral and have three grown sons.

Sport and outdoor pursuits have always been important to me. I have played field hockey from grammar school days and continue to play for Neston / South Wirral Club for the last 28 years. I am fixture secretary for that time, captained sides, and gained my umpiring qualification. I started Judo at the age of 12 and gained my black belt, entering both University and national competitions. In later years I have taken up mountaineering, accompanied by my sons. We go annually to Scotland winter climbing, and have climbed Kilimanjaro (twice! 5895m), Indian Himalayas(6084m), Everest Base Camp and Everest North Col (7000m). This last trip through Tibet was fascinating, we were in Nepal in April 2015 climbing Island Peak(6000m).  In 2016 further trips to Scotland and Nepal are planned.
