About me

I have been a consultant since 2004 - training in the northeast, Wales and Manchester. Much of my training and research was in specialist centres for cancer and this is my main area of work in the NHS. I am the Lead Clinician for Gynaecological Cancers in County Durham & Darlington NHS Trust, with experience in cancer investigation and diagnosis - such as for bleeding, cysts, vulvar lesions. The Cancer Network officially recognises my role in this and authorises me to operate on endometrial cancer pateints.

This specialist experience has also given me expertise in the management of a broad range of benign gynaecological disorders - pelvic pain, menstrual disorders, fibroids, endometriosis.

I am also involved in training doctors in gynaecological surgery, colposcopy, vulvar disease, cancer investigation and management.

I have also been the local Principal Investigator for a number of national research trials - with successful recruitment to agreed targets - benefitting patients who thus have a high standard of care.

Consequently, the care I offer is always evidence-based and my private practice is in line with my NHS scope of practice.
