  • Biography

    I have been a Consultant Gynaecologist in Newcastle-upon-Tyne for 15 years with a major interest in Urogynaecology. I specialise in complex pelvic floor problems, particularly the investigation and surgical management of these, including congenital abnormalities and fistula repairs. I also have an interest in obstetric perineal trauma and in the management of high risk obstetric surgical cases. 

    My active managerial role in the Trust is as Head of Gynaecology. I am also Clinical Governance Lead for Gynaecology.

    My wider involvement in my region and nationally has been mainly through educational (TPD, ATSM lead) and clinical roles (NDUIG), but is increasingly through my managerial role (member of CGS CRG and Northern Senate for last 18 months).
