Mr Kim Hinshaw
MB BS, MRCOG
I have been an NHS consultant in obstetrics and gynaecology at Sunderland Royal Hospital since 1994, and previously a lecturer in obstetrics and gynaecology at the University of Aberdeen.
I offer general gynaecological private care, including management of menstrual (‘period’) problems, pelvic pain (including endometriosis), urinary incontinence, miscarriage (including recurrent miscarriage). I am able to support requests for pregnancy termination (both medical and surgical methods).
I have clinical sessions in both obstetrics and gynaecology and have active research interests in labour management and miscarriage.
I am Director of Research for the Trust and Visiting Professor in the Faculty of Health Science, University of Sunderland.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Kim Hinshaw at Spire include:
Spire Washington Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.

Within medicine I lecture and teach nationally and internationally, particularly in the areas of obstetric emergency skills/drills training and human factors/patient safety.
