Overview

About me

Malcolm Dickson grew up in Scotland, studied at The University of St Andrews and Manchester, qualifying in 1990. He was appointed as Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist in 2000
In addition to his routine work with heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic floor problems, pelvic pain and urinary urgency (Over active bladder issues) Malcolm has a rigorous scientific and research interest. He has authored over 100 peer reviewed scientific articles, letters and international presentations. His main research interests are regarding the impact of undiagnosed hemophilia’s on women’s health, particularly to make surgery safer. As well as the effect that collagen disorders have on female health - especially on the pelvic floor. Because of the time this research interest takes, he has stopped undertaking continence surgery as there were not enough hours in the day.
Despite this scientific background, Malcolm would most definitely be described as a “people” person. As such, he is an enthusiastic proponent of taking a holistic and patient centered approach to the management of his patient’s health needs. Malcolm is keen and very happy to see women with difficult to explain problems. And, as such he is always interested in seeing patients for second, or even third opinions.
Although there is not a great demand, Malcolm has a special interest in PMS. Most women with PMS get along well enough. But there is a small group of women who have life changing symptoms (what Malcolm terms PMS plus). He is always interested in seeing such people and will happily do so on a pro bono basis
Outside of work, Malcolm is a keen cook. He enjoys reading biographies, country pursuits, winter sports, hot hatches, going to steam fairs and car shows and cycling all over the Peak district. He once wrote half a thriller, but stopped when the children came along. His wife is a paediatric anaesthetist and they have two school aged children. They live on a smallholding with a variety of cats, hens and horses.
