Professional profile

I am a Consultant Clinical Oncologist at Bristol Cancer Institute, University Hospitals Bristol and Clinical Director of Spire Oncology Centre with a special interest in breast and urological cancers. I am the research lead for Uro-oncology at Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre. I have led and developed the prostate brachytherapy service at Bristol.

I am an internationally renowned expert on all aspects of prostate cancer treatment and can discuss the intricacies of the new modalities of treatment including IMRT, Proton Therapy, single modality HDR Brachytherapy, enabling patients to come to an informed decision. I have been an expert adviser to NICE for the technology appraisal on new drugs and an external service reviewer at oncology departments elsewhere in the country.

Prior to my current roles, I became Member of the Royal College of Physicians (UK) and trained in Clinical Oncology, achieving the Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists qualification. I have been awarded the fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians. I am a current member of the National Cancer Research Institute Clinical Studies Groups for bladder cancer and chair the penile cancer subgroup. I have been college tutor of the Royal College of Radiologists for 10 years and have supervised several MD theses in breast and prostate cancer research. I have previously been in the NCRI Renal and Prostate clinical studies group. I am an Executive Committee member of the British Uro-oncology group.

I am actively involved in research into breast, prostate, bladder and penile cancers and have more than 100 publications in these research areas and have several presentations at national and international meetings. In 2012, I was awarded the Cochrane Shanks Jalil Professorship by the Royal College of Radiologists, London and I am Visiting Professor to two international centres and at University of West of England. I am currently holding research grants in excess of £2million and am Chief Investigator for several multicentre trials including ATLAS, CONCEPT and ACE which are focusing on new modalities of treatment in breast and prostate cancer and am also leading the robotic brachytherapy project.
