"Spire Hospital is one of the most exciting places to work with opportunities to discuss novel treatment options still not available on the NHS."
I am a medical oncologist which means I specialise in treating cancer patients with medicines which include chemotherapies, immunotherapies, anticancer antibodies, targeted small molecules against cancers and hormonal (endocrine) treatments. I enjoy supporting my patients and their families, and work in partnership with them to make shared treatment decisions.
As a medical oncologist, I participate as an investigator in national clinical studies and keep myself updated with novel (newer) anticancer strategies to give my patients the best outcomes.
I have been working as a Consultant in Medical Oncology at the Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust since 2015. My expertise is to treat patients suffering from breast, ovarian and prostate cancers. One of main interests is the management and research of urologic cancers and therefore my patient I am also a visiting medical oncologist at the North Lincolnshire and Goole Foundation Trust and the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust where I manage patients with lung and skin cancers including melanoma.
I am the Lead for Acute Oncology Services and Chair for Morbidity and Mortality Reviews in the Oncology Department at the Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. In my hospital role, I lead multiple audits and quality improvement projects.
In addition to my clinical work, I am also proud to be an Honorary Lecturer at the Hull and York Medical School. One of my passions is the teaching and training of medical students and trainees in Internal Medicine and Oncology.
I am responsible for arranging oncology rotation for doctors in training in the Oncology and Haematology Department at the Hull University Teaching NHS Trust. In addition, my role includes clinical and educational supervision of Internal Medicine, General Practice (GP) and Oncology trainees.
I am fluent in English, Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi.
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Hull and East Riding Hospital.

I enjoy spending my spare time with my wife and Two daughters and speaking with my mother on telephone who lives abroad. I love cycling and running. Recently I have developed interest in DIY and realise how much I have missed it in my life. My favourite reading weekly issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
