My primary interests are in Endometriosis, Subfertility, Benign Gynaecology such as menstrual disorders, ovarian adnexal masses, female sterilisation, menopause, pelvic pain and hysteroscopy.
I moved to Yorkshire in 2007 to commence specialist training in Obstetrics & Gynaecology. During my training I focused my attention on developing my skills as a fertility specialist undertaking a medical doctorate in subfertility through the Hull York Medical School completing this in 2016.
I developed skills in advanced laparoscopic surgery. I took part in the BSGE Laparoscopic Training Programme; this was a competitive entry training travelling fellowship during which I was taught by the leading laparoscopic gynaecological surgeons in the UK and Europe. I subsequently completed the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists advanced training in laparoscopic surgery for the treatment of deep infiltrating endometriosis under the supervision of Mr Kevin Phillips and have a wide depth of experience in managing complex endometriosis and benign gynaecology. I work within the Hull regional endometriosis centre at Castlehill Hospital. I have experience across the breadth of benign gynaecology. I developed an interest in gynaecological oncology. I trained in colposcopy and became accredited in 2014; I was awarded the prize for the highest score in the BSCCP Colposcopy accreditation examinations. I developed skills in advanced laparoscopic gynaecological surgery. I took part in the BSGE Laparoscopic Training Programme; this was a competitive entry training travelling fellowship during which I was taught by the leading laparoscopic gynaecological surgeons in the UK and Europe.
I obtained my certificate of completion of specialist training in 2015 and was appointed as a Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist at York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
