Professional profile

My main interests are in medical gynaecology, menopause and hormone replacement therapy. I also hold a Diploma in Genito-Urinary Medicine and part of my NHS role is diagnosing and managing genital problems (such as skin problems) and sexually transmitted infection. I am trained in gynaecological ultrasound so perform detailed transvaginal scans for reassurance and to diagnose gynaecological disease.

I trained in medicine at the University of Glasgow and qualified in 1985. Initially I worked in anaesthesia but for the past twenty years I have trained and worked in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. I work in the NHS as a consultant in Gynaecology and Sexual Health at the Chalmers Centre for Sexual and Reproductive Health in Edinburgh city centre.

I have been trained in the management of female sexual problems so I am familiar with seeing patients who may have a problem they have usually found too embarrassing or too personal to discuss with their regular healthcare professionals.
