Lyn qualified in medicine and surgery at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School in June 1987 (MBBS). Working as a junior doctor she completed post-graduate training in Bristol but has also worked in Westminster, Winchester, Cardiff, China and New Zealand.
She has obtained professional qualifications in both Surgery and Radiology, becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1991 (FRCS) and a Fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists in 1999 (FRCR).
In September 2002 Lyn took up her consultant position at North Bristol NHS Trust specialising in vascular and breast radiology. In this post she set up a sclerotherapy service for complex vascular anomalies and developed endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) and other stent and angioplasty endovascular services and currently works within the Bristol Breast Care Centre where she has a particular interest in Breast MRI and also new non-surgical treatments for breast disease. Lyn's background involves precise and delicate manipulation of arterial and venous catheters, wires and other specialised instruments guided by ultrasound and other modern imaging devices. Lyn is a member of the British Society of Interventional Radiologists (BSIR), the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE) and the British Society of Breast Radiologists.

Lyn has published on varicose vein surgical outcomes and other vascular and breast related subjects within radiology and surgery. Currently she is involved in research into the use of laser ablation of small breast cancers under ultrasound guidance as a minimally invasive alternative to surgery. Recently she has collaborated on several papers about the mapping of arterial blood supply using Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) prior to free flap breast reconstruction.
