Treatment restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

As part of our longstanding relationship, we are proud to be dedicating our resources to the NHS at this important time. As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Professional profile

After graduating from The Queen's University of Belfast I did my pre membership training in the Belfast Teaching Hospitals. My post membership training was at St James' University Hospital and The Jessop Hospital for Women, Sheffield, before taking up a consultant post at Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield.

I offer a full gynaecological service with a special interest in minimal access surgery. I have extensive experience with diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy and treatments for excessive menstrual bleeding and I am proud to have introduced uterine balloon ablation to Spire Little Aston Hospital. I have a keen interest in pelvic pain and laparoscopic treatment of endometriosis. I am a certified colposcopist with BSCCP and offer colposcopy services. In my NHS practice I run a menopause service and offer advice on all forms of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

I have a strong interest in training and I am a college tutor in obstetrics and gynaecology and also a postgraduate clinical tutor at Good Hope Hospital.
