I offer a broad range of general gynaecological investigations and treatments - in particular, management of menstrual problems (including endometriosis/pelvic pain), prolapse, urinary incontinence, and miscarriage. I offer early pregnancy ultrasound

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.
