After qualifying as a doctor from Imperial College, I undertook my training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in hospitals in London and Kent. Following completion of my general training, I undertook a subspecialty fellowship in urogynaecology at St. George's Hospital London, which lead to formal subspecialty accreditation in Urogynaecology from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. I have also been awarded a doctorate in Urogynaecology based on my research into urinary incontinence.
I have wide experience of conservative and surgical treatments for urinary incontinence, prolapse (including uterus conserving surgery), bladder pain, childbirth injury and other pelvic floor problems. I am also experienced in the management of women with menstrual problems and other general gynaecological issues.
My personal aim is to practice woman centred care and to strive for joint decision making on suitable treatments based on a careful assessment of the underlying problem and each individual woman's wishes.
Areas of interest
Urogynaecology; pelvic floor dysfunction; childbirth injury; urinary incontinence; pelvic organ prolapse; menstrual problems; pelvic pain

I have over 30 peer reviewed publications in the field of urogynaecology covering the full spectrum of pelvic floor dysfunction and incontinence. My current research projects are focusing on diagnostic methods and underlying causes for stress incontinence; new treatments for overactive bladder; and the association between voiding and overactive bladder
I was born and brought up in Kent, and live in the local area with my husband. In my spare time I enjoy swimming and reading novels, and I love to travel.
