I am a Professor of Urogynaecology and Consultant Gynaecologist at King's College Hospital, London. I trained at Liverpool University Medical School and qualified MBChB in 1974. Thereafter I developed a special interest in urinary incontinence at St George's Hospital under the aegis of Professor Stuart Stanton obtaining an MD in 1979, MRCOG in 1980, and FRCOG in 1991.
Following my appointment as a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist in 1985 I continued to develop my interest in all aspects of urogynaecology including the influence of hormones on the lower urinary tract, conservative and surgical treatment of stress incontinence, the patho-physiology and pharmacological treatment of detrusor overactivity and the management of urogenital prolapse.
I now head a busy and productive tertiary referral urogynaecology department at King's College Hospital. I have a large clinical workload dealing with complex urogynaecological problems in a supra-regional tertiary referral unit teaching medical students, training junior doctors and undertaking clinical research.
I have been President of the International Urogynaecological Association, Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women's Health and Section of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of the Royal Society of Medicine. I was the Founding Chairman of the British Society of Urogynaecology, Past Chairman of British Menopause Society and of the Education Committee of International Continence Society. I am currently Co-Chairman of the World Health Organisation International Consultation on Incontinence and President of the European Urogynaecology Association. I have sat on numerous committees including the Council of Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists for whom I am currently an International Fellows Representative.
