"Spire Hartswood has a patient centred approach with great facilities and relaxed yet professional atmosphere, it comes highly recommended amongst my peers."
I have been working in the NHS for over 16 years and in my current role as a consultant for three years. I was an East of England Academic Trainee having rotated through various major hospitals in the region at Addenbrookes, Norfolk and Norwich, before completing my training. I am highly published and have presented widely at local, national and international conferences and meetings and have won several prizes and awards for my work. As a result of my academic training, I completed a PhD at the University of Cambridge funded by a personal grant from the Medical Research Council. I have a research interest in prostate cancer diagnostics and have worked on development of the MRI scan in the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
Clinically, I am a general urologist with a specialist interest in minimally invasive renal surgery. I have a particular interest in education, lead an educational programme and examine for the local Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) medical school and supervise students from both ARU and St Marys and the Barts in London.
I am the current co-clinical lead for Urology at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, the year two lead for the clinical attachments for Anglia Ruskin University. I am a module co-lead for the national Urology Bootcamp, a compulsory course for all new urology trainees.
