On completion of my postgraduate training in the North West, I was appointed as a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at the Blackpool Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in 2012.
I specialise in the management of benign gynaecological conditions with particular interest in menstrual disorders, pelvic pain, endometriosis, infertility, ambulatory gynaecological procedures and minimal access surgery (laparoscopy and hysteroscopy).
I am currently the lead clinician for risk governance in obstetrics and gynaecology, and previously head of department (2016-2017) at Blackpool Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
