After my post-MBBS specialist MRCOG (progressing to FRCOG in 1990's) and subspecialist training over 10 years in London and a PhD from University of London, I came to St James's Hospital Leeds as a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist in 1991.

In the first 10 years, I established, developed and supervised the Reproductive Medicine, Surgery and Assisted Conception services as the Lead Clinician and HFEA Person Responsible between 1991-2010 and remained the HFEA Person Responsible in Leeds Centre for Reproductive Medicine (now Leeds Fertility) between 2010-2017 until I retired from the NHS in 2017. In 2005, the demands of my sub-specialty meant that I had to give up antenatal management and labour ward duties but have continued to manage the early pregnancy or first trimester of pregnancy issues.

Professionally, my ethos has always been to provide evidence based care with awareness of the latest developments and medical controversies, never to dictate but to allow patient empowerment for Informed Consent, to allow time for reflection and consideration, to always act within my expertise and to refer to allied specialists when necessary with patient safety and confidentiality as a foremost requirement. My practice has always received commendations from both within and outside the sphere of my peers and regulators.

Apart from professional qualifications, I have gratefully received the following civic rewards, Honorary PhD from Leeds Metropolitan University, and Yorkshire Woman of the Year. I have also served as an Independent Member on the Board of Governors at the Leeds Metropolitan University for 10 years.
