Professional profile

I am a medical oncologist treating breast cancer, skin cancer and urological cancer (kidney, bladder and prostate). I have extensive experience in managing cancer at these sites. I have a particular interest in personalised oncology ie tailoring treatment to the individual genetic characteristics of each patient and in using immunotherapy to treat cancer. I have > 100 publications on cancer research in peer-reviewed journals and maintain an ongoing active interest in basic and clinical cancer research.

I specialise in the treatment of breast cancer, advanced skin cancer and urological oncology (kidney, bladder and prostate cancer).

I have over six years of consultant level experience in managing cancer patients.

I am the lead clinician for chemotherapy at Southend University NHS Trust.

Personal Profile

I am from Chelmsford and am proud to be a consultant cancer physician back in the county where I grew up. I spend almost all my time either in hospital or in research laboratories but I also enjoy watching Arsenal play football, Essex play cricket, going to the theatre and reading.
