About me

I am a Medical Oncologist with 20 years experience at Consultant level and specialise in the medical treatment of a range of cancers. I am the only provider of private Medical Oncology services in Gloucestershire. I trained in several London teaching Hospitals including the Royal Marsden, St Bartholomew's and Guy's Hospital and also undertook a research degree (PhD) at the Institute of Cancer Research, Royal Marsden Hospital, London. Research continues to be an integral part of my practice in order to drive new developments in care for my patients as well as providing them with the latest and most cutting-edge treatments.

I am a leader in the introduction of targeted biological therapies and Immunotherapy in a range of solid tumours in our service. I am also leading on the introduction of molecular profiling to introduce new treatments based on the genetic signature rather than site of origin.

Areas of interest

I can provide chemotherapy, targeted therapies and immunotherapy treatment in the home or outpatient setting to maximise self-isolation and distancing for vulnerable patients.
