  • Biography

    I trained at Newcastle University and commenced my oncology training in 1993. I was appointed Consultant based at Northern Centre for Cancer Care in 2001 and my special interests are in neuro-oncology, paediatric radiotherapy , stereotactic radiosurgery and haematological malignancy.
    I lead a number of clinical trials in my areas of interest based at Sir Bobby Robson Unit and am actively involved in mentoring and teaching for oncology trainees.
    I am Chair of the Neuro-science MDT and Neuro-oncology Network MDT for brain tumours.
    I am delighted that thanks to generosity of local charities that we are now able to offer local patients stereotactic radiosurgery to brain tumours (primary and secondary) at NCCC. This is a special interest area for me and we hope to expand this service in the next 5 years.
    I am a member of the European Research Group for Brain Tumours, British Neuro-oncology Society , Royal College Radiologists and CCLG.
