Dr Michelle MacKintosh
Consultant Gynaecologist and Gynaecological Oncologist
I am a consultant gynaecologist and gynaecological oncologist. As well as caring for women with suspected or proven gynaecological cancers I am a BSCCP accredited colposcopist specialising in the management of abnormal smear tests and cervical and vulval disorders. I also provide care for women suffering with ovarian cysts, menstrual problems, postmenopausal bleeding as well as risk-reducing surgery for ovarian and endometrial cancers.
After graduating from the University of Manchester I undertook general training in Obstetrics & Gynaecology and went on to complete subspecialty training in Gynaecological Oncology at St. Mary’s Hospital and The Christie Hospital, Manchester. I have also completed additional training in advanced surgical techniques for ovarian cancer in an internationally renowned centre in Germany and I am a Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists accredited gynaecological oncology surgeon.
I was awarded an MD by the University of Manchester for my research into the effects of obesity and weight loss on endometrial cancer risk and have published widely and presented internationally on the subject.
I was appointed as an NHS consultant at St. Mary’s Hospital, Manchester in 2018 and am heavily involved in ensuring the provision of high-quality patient care through my additional leadership roles in Clinical Effectiveness and as Mortality & Morbidity Lead.
