Specialises in

I am an experienced gynaecologist with a diverse and broad experience in both obstetrics and gynaecology. I believe in patient-centred and high quality care and in evidence-based practice.

I received my preliminary education in Malta and primary medical qualification from Karachi. I completed my entire training in obstetrics and gynaecology training in the South Thames London deanery rotational training programme in the UK and received trophy of excellence at the 2nd Annual London Deanery trainee conference. I was appointed a substantive Consultant in the NHS in 2011. I obtained my Membership and Fellowship from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, RCOG, London.

I have been Clinical Services Group Lead and Lead Consultant for the labour ward and CNST in my NHS post. I am also an examiner for the RCOG, London and have also completed Integrated Leadership Programme from Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford.

I have publications in peer reviewed journals and have published chapters in text books.
