Having studied Medicine at New College, Oxford University (BM, BCh, MA), Ms de Sousa returned to where she grew up, the North West for her surgical training in 1996. Always with a focus on Breast Surgery, she has worked with some of the leading plastic and breast surgeons in the region. Between 2001 and 2003, she carried out molecular research into breast cancer at St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne Australia, to gain a Doctorate of Medicine (DM), and has presented her work nationally and internationally. During her Fellowship at the prestigious Nottingham Breast Institute in 2013, Ms de Sousa worked closely with innovative, specialist breast and plastic surgeons. Following a successful time as Consultant Breast Surgeon at the Oxford University John Radcliffe Hospital, Ms de Sousa chose to return to the North West to pursue her career at home.
