  • Biography

    Originally from Sunderland, I read Physiology and Clinical Medicine at New College, Oxford. I completed surgical training in Yorkshire and completed a PhD in immunology. I trained in clinical radiology in Leeds, and became a Consultant Breast Radiologist in Newcastle in 2011.

    I perform all aspects of breast radiology, however, my specialist interest is the use of percutaneous biopsy techniques in the diagnosis and management of breast disease. I maintain an interest in general ultrasound and ultrasound-guided intervention. I have an active research interest and completed a Diploma in Health Research Methods in 2011. Outside work I enjoy running, and spend the rest of my time with my family (mostly running after my children).
