Personal Profile

I manage busy professional and family lives, with two daughters (17 and 25) and a very active 4 year old grandson. Outside medicine I enjoy skiing, golf, cycling and (watching) rugby. Within medicine I lecture and teach nationally and internationally, particularly in the areas of obstetric emergency skills/drills training and human factors/patient safety. I remain involved with training in obstetrics and gynaecology at national level developing the postgraduate curriculum in the specialty.
