I have been a consultant in the NHS as well as in private practice for 17 years.
I am committed to providing the highest standard of care. Key to my approach is to listen to patients. Only then can one determine what their concerns are. My patients are always involved in decisions affecting their treatment. Unlike many of my colleagues, I am able to offer patients a choice of surgical treatments and tailor treatment to their individual needs. With regard to prolapse surgery, I regularly perform simple and complex operations. Appropriate cases are discussed by our urogynaecology multidisciplinary team which I helped set up.
I submit the outcomes of all my continence procedures and prolapse surgery to the British Society of Urogynaecology Database, which allows me to audit my work and continue to improve the care that I provide. Information collected includes patient symptom questionnaire scores, complications and detailed anatomical assessment. For the above reasons, I strongly believe that a dedicated urogynaecologist rather than a general gynaecologist should perform all prolapse surgery.
I am often asked to provide a second opinion in complex cases.
My last 360-degree appraisal was very positive. I regularly receive positive feedback from my patients for the care that I provide, and also from trainees and GPs for the quality of my teaching.

Over 1400 procedures to treat urinary incontinence

Courses offered to GPs
I give informal talks to GPs on a range of pelvic floor problems in women. I am happy to be contacted at any time to meet with GPs and their practice staff, so that we can help each other to provide the best care for our patients.
I submit outcomes of all surgery (successes, failures, complications, etc) that I perform for prolapse and urinary incontinence to the British Society of Urogynaecology Database. I have consistently received very positive feedback for my communication, teaching, clinical and surgical skills from patients, fellow consultants, GPs, and trainees.
