Professional profile

I am a female Consultant Plastic and Breast Surgeon at the Nightingale Centre, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust. This is one of the leading breast units in the UK. My practice covers all aspects of breast disease, breast cancer and breast reconstruction. This encompasses oncoplastic techniques, implant and microsurgical breast reconstruction and complex revisional breast surgery. I bring this expertise to private practice, along with skills in aesthetic breast and body contouring surgery.

I gained my medical degree at the world-renowned University of Oxford. Following foundation training in Oxford, I returned to my roots in the North West to complete Specialty Registrar training in Plastic Surgery, becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. I sub-specialised by completing the prestigious National Oncoplastic Breast Fellowship at the Nightingale Breast Centre, developing further expertise in all aspects of breast surgery, reconstruction and aesthetic surgery. Immediately following my fellowship, I was appointed as a Consultant at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust.

I have completed a Master’s degree in clinical education and I am actively involved in education at a local and national level. I have published research papers on plastic and breast Surgery and I have presented my work widely at national and international conferences.
