Professional profile

I am a Clinical Oncologist specialising in the treatment of pelvic cancers especially prostate, bladder and colorectal cancer. I have a particular interest in the use of targeted radiotherapy IMRT and IGRT and also in brachytherapy for prostate cancer. I am able to provide chemotherapy and hormone treatments at both Spire Harpenden and at Mount Vernon hospitals, plus radiotherapy treatments at both the CanerPartners radiotherapy unit at Elstree or at Mount Vernon hospital.

I work as part of the urology and colorectal cancer multi disciplinary teams based in North Hertfordshire treating patients with both localised and advanced tumours within a multi disciplinary group with support from my surgical, radiological and nursing colleagues.
