Professional profile

I have been a Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology / Urogynaecology since 2009. I am the Urogynaecology Lead and I lead the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS FT Pelvic Floor Service which comprises Urogynaecology, Urology and Colorectal services and specialists, Women's Health Physiotherapy and Continence Advisory Services. I have developed robust protocols and guidelines and a large document repository for advice and support for clinicians.

I set up and chair the Urogynaecology MDT in 2013 and the multidisciplinary Pelvic Floor MDT for Calderdale and Kirklees in the same year. The Pelvic Floor Service has been awarded the British Society of Urogynaecology Accreditation.

I hold regular Urogynaecology clinics at Spire Elland Hospital as well as Urodynamic studies, hysteroscopies and have a regular theatre list.

Research interests: I am the local principle investigator for several multicentre UK collaborative trials including Prospect Trial, VUE Study and OPAL Trial.
