I am a consultant Medical Oncologist with interests in the specialist non-surgical management of upper and lower gastrointestinal malignancies, testicular tumours and general/acute oncology. I offer treatment with chemotherapy, immunotherapy and biological targeted systemic therapy. I am a strong believer in patient centred care and I recommend treatment in the light of most up to date published clinical evidence. I am actively involved in recruitment and management of patients enrolled in clinical trials.
I also teach and deliver training to junior doctors and future oncology specialists and I am an examiner for the Leicester Medical School. I have published in peer-reviewed journals.
I qualified as a medical doctor in 1996.
