  • Biography

    I have a specialist interest in urological malignancies and lymphoma radiotherapy. In particular I have been involved in the development and implementation of state of the art radiotherapy techniques including image guided radiotherapy (IGRT), intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and Tomotherapy. I am also leading the Newcastle team expanding the prostate brachytherapy programme.
    I am responsible for the delivery of systemic treatment including chemotherapy, targeted therapies, and hormone therapies for all urological malignancies. I am actively involved in clinical research and a Principal Investigator in a number of clinical trials.
    I work closely with the haematology lymphoma team and deliver radiotherapy for haematological malignancies. I also run a joint clinic with dermatology looking after Mycoisis Fungoides patients from across the North-East of England.
