  • Biography

    My medical training was at Trinity Cambridge and Charing Cross Hospital London. I trained in oncology at the Hammersmith Hospital before moving to the North East in 1985. I was appointed consultant in 1988 and have held clinics in a number of hospitals in the region including Queen Elizabeth Gateshead, Dryburn, Bishop Auckland and more recently North Tyneside. I was clinical director for cancer services at Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Trust from 2004-2010 during which time the service moved across the city to the new NCCC at the Freeman.
    I have worked with the North of England Cancer Network since its inception. I was chair of the network radiotherapy group from 2005 to 2011 and in November 2012 I became medical director of the cancer network.
    I am actively involved in clinical research and I am local principle investigator for a number of national clinical trials.
