About me

I have been a consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Sunderland since 1994, having trained in NE England and NE Scotland from 1982. I offer a broad range of general gynaecological investigations and treatments - in particular, management of menstrual problems (including endometriosis/pelvic pain), prolapse, menopausal problems (including post-menopausal bleeding) and urinary incontinence. I participate in the pregnancy termination service at the Spire Washington Hospital.

I provide rapid initial assessment under the new BUPA 'Cancer Direct Access' service for patients who have symptoms that might suggest gynaecological cancer (affecting the cervix, womb or ovaries).

I offer early pregnancy ultrasound and am atively involved in miscarriage care (including reurrent miscarriage). I receive regional referrals for management of mid-pregnancy loss/miscarriage from 'cervical incomptence' and offer transabdominal and complex cervical sutures.

I lead a team of research midwives and nurses in Sunderland and was appointed as a Visiting Professor at Sunderland University in 2014.
