BSc, MD, MRCP, MBBS, FRCR
I originally qualified at St George’s Hospital Medical School (University of London) where I was awarded a distinction and several academic prizes. I trained in Clinical Oncology at Imperial College and St Bartholomew’s Hospital and subsequently undertook a Cancer Research UK MD Fellowship at University College London.
I treat solid tumours using chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and biological therapy – my main focus is on colorectal cancer, cancers of the oesophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, and lung cancer. My main research interest is in the area of functional cancer imaging, where I am looking for ways to assess response to treatment much earlier and techniques for assessing blood flow and oxygen levels within cancers.
I am also heavily involved with the implementation of the latest radiotherapy techniques such as IMRT, IGRT and Tomotherapy, combining targeted or anti-vascular drugs with radiotherapy, and stereotactic body radiosurgery. I am one of the first UK doctors to use the CyberKnife stereotactic body radiosurgery unit. I have published widely in peer-reviewed journals and is currently lead clinical oncologist for audit and clinical governance at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
