About me

I qualified as a doctor in 1985 from Kings College Hospital in London and am now one of the most senior consultants in the speciality in the East of Engalnd
After starting training as a GP I changed my career plans to become a Obstetrician and Gynaecologist. During my training I developed an interest in treating women with female incontinence and prolapse (urogynaecology). I was appointed a full time NHS consultant in Ipswich in 2001 and am the lead for treating female incontinence and prolapse in the area. I also maintain a large practising profile in all aspects of Gynaecology.
I have been a member of both the Royal College of Obetretricians and Gynaecologists and the Britsih Society of Urogynaeclogy Guidelines committee and am presently an examiner for the MRCOG exams and an external college assessor.
I was revalidated by the GMC in 2013 and have an annual appraisal of all aspects of my practise in preparation of my next revalidation in 2018
