Professional profile

I studied medicine at Cambridge University and qualified in 1987. I undertook my basic surgical training in Cambridge and Norwich and after a spell in London as a general surgical registrar I moved to Leeds to undertake my urological training based at St James University Hospital in Leeds. It was here that I developed a specialist interest in bladder disorders and incontinence. I undertook a period of research at the Department of Physiology at the University of Leeds and my research thesis was in the Sensory Innervation of the Urinary Bladder. I am a Consultant Urological Surgeon at the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust and have recently moved to part time working at the trust but will continue to offer a full urological service at the Spire Elland Hospital for private and NHS patients. My specialist interest is in Incontinence and the Overactive bladder and I regularly perform operations for stress incontinence in women and well as having a specialist interest in the use of bladder Botulinum toxin (Botox) injection for this common condition. Since 2010, I have been an examiner at the Royal College of Surgeons in London and examine trainee surgeons in the MRCS examinations both nationally and internationally.
