Areas of interest
My particular interests include the treatment of acute leukaemias, myelodysplasia and chronic myeloid leukaemia.
I am the Acute Leukaemia Lead Clinician for the Lancashire and South Cumbria Cancer Network, covering a population of 1.6 million people. I am based at Blackpool Victoria Hospital, which is the regional centre for the treatment of this disorder, as well as the treatment of other serious blood diseases requiring complex therapy.
I have been heavily involved in the recruitment of patients to national clinical trials for over 10 years. I am a member of the National AML Working Party, a national committee that run clinical trials in the treatment of acute leukaemia throughout the UK.
I graduated from Downing College Cambridge in 1993, before completing my clinical training at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in London in 1996. I undertook my specialist haematology training in Manchester, including at the Manchester Royal Infirmary and the Christie Hospital.
