    I graduated from University College Dublin in 1985 and trained in general medicine before moving to Newcastle in 1990 to train in Palliative Medicine.
    I’ve been a Consultant in Palliative Medicine at the Newcastle Hospitals and the Marie Curie Hospice since 1995. My clinical interests lie in pain management and caring for teenagers and young adults diagnosed with cancer or a haematological malignancy.
