Professional profile

I qualified from the University of Bombay (India) and did my oncology training in India's largest cancer hospital, Tata Memorial Hospital, Bombay, where I was appointed as a consultant oncologist in 1989. I decided to move to the UK in 1992 and joined Europe's largest cancer centre, Christie's Hospital, Manchester, where I consolidated my oncological experience.

I was appointed as a consultant oncologist in 1996 at the newly established cancer centre in Preston. Since starting my oncology practise, I am involved in national and international clinical trials and have produced significant publications. I have a keen interest in teaching and currently I am an educational supervisor and college tutor for oncology.
