Born in London into a medical family, I trained at Nottingham University Medical School and qualified in 1993. I undertook basic surgical training in London and after gaining a wide experience in general surgery was awarded the FRCS(Eng) qualification in 1998.
I then began my Urological training in the UK before moving to start a fellowship in Prostate Cancer at the Juravinski Cancer Centre in Ontario, Canada. Here I trained in Urological Cancer Surgery and established a Prostate Cancer research project. This project focussed on investigating the characteristics of prostate cancer cells that allow them to metastasise or spread into the bones. I was awarded a doctorate for this work.
On returning to the UK, I completed my training in the Trent region before being appointed as a Consultant Urological Surgeon at Kings Mill and Royal Derby Hospitals. In 2014 my main NHS appointment moved from Kings Mill Hospital to the Royal Derby Hospital though I continue to run a clinic for urological cancer patients at Kings Mill Hospital.
In addition to my NHS commitments I see private patients at Derby Private Health (within the Royal Derby Hospital), Nuffield Health, Derby Hospital and The Park Hospital, Nottingham.
I am always happy to offer my experience and expertise to GP’s and their patients. In many cases this will mean simple reassurance. However, if further investigation is required, I will advise on the best course of action for the patient concerned.
Patients can be certain of a sympathetic and reassuringly professional consultation.
