Born in 1971, I was educated at Magdalen College School Oxford and went onto attend The Combined Medical & Dental School of the Royal London and St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London. I started medical school in 1991, and after an extra years study for a further B.Sc. graduated in 1997. I completed all of my post graduate training posts in the London region.
My interest in Obstetrics and Gynaecology began at medical school, especially that of pre-malignant disease of the cervix and the management of women with abnormal cervical smear tests. This interest has shaped my entire career.
I achieved my Membership of the Royal College of Obstetrician’s & Gynaecologists in 2003, and was elevated to a Fellow of the College, FRCOG, in 2016 in recognition for my contribution to the specialty, specifically in Colposcopy and cervical screening.
I have been a Consultant since 2008 and my current NHS position is at Bedfordshire Hospitals Foundation Trust, Luton & Dunstable Hospital site.
I have an international reputation in Cervical Screening & Colposcopy, with particular regard to the Quality assurance aspects of delivering a cervical screening program. I am the Professional Clinical Advisor to Public Health England for Colposcopy, having been a former Quality Assurance Director for the Programme. I spent over a decade on the Committee of the BSCCP, the governing body of colposcopy in the UK.
Outside of work I am very happily married with a teenage daughter. I continue with various interests, around music, the arts, and sport. I still continue to play representative cricket for the MCC.
