Professional profile

Since quailfying as a Doctor in 1992 I have dedicated my career to the treatment of women with both benign and malignant gynaecological conditions. After completing my training in General Obstetrics and Gynaecology I spent a further three years of specialist training in Gynaecological Oncology so that I am registered dual accredited by the GMC.

In my role as Clinical Director for Gynaecology at the Queen Alexandra Hospital I am the lead for the single visit endometrial cancer screening service for women with postmenopausal bleeding. I am actively involved in the development of the colposcopy service and I am leading the development of a single visit menstrual disorder clinic where again women will have the opportunity to have all the investigations and the treatment in the outpatient setting.

In the treatment of Endometrial Cancer I am leading the promotion of the use of Minimal Access Surgical (MAS) Techniques for which has radically improved the post operative recovery of these patients reducing inpatient stay from 3-7 days for open surgery to 1-2 days for MAS treated patients.

My special interests are in screening for gynaecological malignancies and in the advancement of the surgical treatment of both benign and malignant gynaecological conditions.
