BSc, BM, FRCP
I graduated from of The University of Southampton with degrees in Molecular Biology and Medicine. After training in a range of London hospitals, I became Senior Registrar & Research Fellow at The Royal Marsden NHS Trust. In this post I undertook a systematic review of The Management of Intestinal Obstruction due to advanced Gynaecological and Intestinal Cancer, funded by the NHS Executive Research and Development Fund. Numerous papers have resulted from this work, published in the specialist professional literature covering the fields of palliative medicine, general surgery, specialised gynecological oncology, and oncology.
My major interests include pathophysiology and the diagnosis and treatment of malignant intestinal obstruction, together with teaching focusing on the need for critical appraisal of the literature.
I have made many presentations to local, national & international meetings, most notably as invited expert speaker to the NIH meeting in Los Angeles in 2004.
I am passionate about the need for adequate palliative care and pain relief for all patients at any stage of their illness.
