Specialises in

I qualified from the University of Dundee in 1996. I did my internship in Dundee. My basic surgical training was in the Manchester and Lancaster area for three years. I successfully completed higher surgical training in the West Midlands region. I also carried out an MSc in surgical science at the University College of London and my thesis (research) was on colorectal cancer cells adhesions.

Following the completion of my higher surgical training, I undertook an extra year specialising in laparoscopic colorectal surgery (fellowship) at the Basingstoke and Frimley Park hospitals, (National Training Centres for Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery) prior to my consultant appointment in Blackpool in 2008.

I have been a Lead Clinician for colorectal cancer in the Blackpool Victoria Hospital since 2012.
