About me

All my clinical training since qualification has been in the UK, I started in Sussex, then moved to Leeds where I did most of my training and then returning to Sussex where I started. I have served women and couples in Sussex for over twenty years and throughout this period I have done, and continue to do, my utmost to achieve the highest level of patient care. I see patients from different areas in the South and from abroad. I have extensive experience in general gynaecology, pelvic surgery and minimally invasive surgery. I have clinical expertise in management of menstrual and abnormal bleeding, and in the management of premenstrual syndrome, the menopause (I am a member of the British Menopause Society) and gynaecology cancer. I am an accredited colposcopist with the British Society of Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology. I have a number of publications, including papers presented abroad. I have represented the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists on interview panels for consultant posts and accreditation for training throughout the South East, also as an assessor for independent reviews for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, as as well as an assessor for the ombudsman. For a number of years I was a counsellor for Women Doctors in the NHS Trust.
