I have done clinical research in the field of breast cancer and presented papers at various national and internal conferences whilst working in the Academic Unit at the University of Hull. Since December 1999 I have held a full time consultant post in surgery at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. My particular interest is in breast surgery, hernia repair, laparoscopic gall bladder surgery and day case surgery.
