Specialises in

I have been a Consultant Radiologist in the Cambridge Breast Unit since 2003, and was Director of Breast Imaging, and Director of the Cambridge and Huntingdon Breast Screening Service (C&HBSS) from 2007 to 2010.

Prior to joining the team at Cambridge I was a consultant at Bedford Hospital and Clinical Director of Beds and Herts Breast Screening Service based at Luton and Dunstable Hospital. I was the East Anglian Regional Quality Assurance Radiologist for the Breast Screening Programme for three years from 2004-2007. I have also formerly been Secretary of the Royal College of Radiologist Breast Group.

I was honoured to have been elected as Medical Director for Professional Support at the Royal College of Radiologists and took up office in September 2012. I have represented the college at European meetings on audit and on the NICE familial breast cancer guideline group.

I have contributed to two major radiology books in the past year, and one multidisciplinary book on breast disease. I am regularly invited to speak at major national and international conferences.

I also serve on the Examining Board of the European Diploma in Radiology, and am responsible for delivering the written content of the European Diploma in Radiology examination. I am also chair to the Self-Assessment Committee of the European Society of Radiology, coordinating, writing and editing modules on self assessment in radiology.
