Specialist interests

I set up and developed the rapid access clinics for breast cancer, providing same day mammography, ultrasound and biopsy. From 1994 - 2007 I was the lead for breast cancer services, establishing a multidisciplinary team which discusses all patients with a new or potential breast cancer. My current interests are breast conserving surgery and the management of family history risk of breast cancer. I have been a reviewer for Breast Cancer Peer review over the last 6 years.

I run a monthly general paediatric surgery clinic on G Floor, in the main paediatric department, where I see all the more minor surgical problems of childhood, from circumcisions to toenails, from missing testes to hernias. These children then undergo surgery as a day case in the DTC on a dedicated list which is held once a fortnight. My other clinical interests are thyroid and parathyroid surgery.

My broader healthcare interests include the best use of technology in medicine, patient safety, and improving communication.
