Professional profile

After graduating from The Queen's Universiry of Belfast I did my pre-membership training in the Belfast Teaching Hospitals. My post-membership training was at St James' (Jimmys) University hospital and The Hessop 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 HRT.

I have a strong interest in training and I am a college tutor in obstetrics and gynaecology and also post graduate clinical tutor at Good Hope hospital. I write for a womens health web site on common gynaecological conditions. The site can be accessed at
