About me

I am a Consultant Medical Oncologist at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Harrogate and District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. I have been in post since 2010. I am the clinical lead for chemotherapy services. I am also Clinical Lecturer at the Hull & York Medical School.

I was born in the UK and grew up here. After completing my training at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College & The Royal London, I worked in hospitals in Kent, Essex and London. I completed my training in Medical Oncology in London and the South East including The Royal Marsden Hospital, Guys and St Thomas’ and The Kent Oncology Centre.

My BSc was in Human Genetics at UCL and I spent 3 years at The University of Kent lecturing and carrying out cancer research in the field of growth factor receptors. Currently, I am research active and involved with collaborative clinical trials at York and Harrogate Hospitals.

My spare time is spent with my family and in climbing and swimming to keep fit; I also enjoy reading and guitar.

I specialise in the management and treatment of Lung Cancer and Bowel Cancer. I also have an interest in the treatment of Neuroendocrine Cancers and Cancer of Unknown Origin.

I believe passionately in providing personalised and holistic cancer care, putting every patient's individual wishes and dignity at the centre of my management. Excellent communication with patients and their loved ones, professionalism, kindness, respect and compassion is at the heart of everything I do.
