I am a Professor of Oncology at the Hammersmith Hospital, London. I am the author of around 400 research papers and chapters, on a variety of cancers, and of eleven books on cancer. I practice as a general oncologist, treating patients with a wide range of malignancies. I specialise in urological oncology treating patients with prostate, kidney, bladder and testicular cancer and have developed new treatments for these conditions such as LHRH agonist therapy for prostate cancer.
I have raised funds for the building of the Hammersmith Cancer Centre whose spirit aims to combine the best of conventional and alternative therapies. I founded Prostate Cancer UK, the first United Kingdom national organisation promoting research and patient support for this condition. I helped establish an All Party Parliamentary Group to improve cancer treatment and rationalise cancer research throughout the UK
I am an oncologist in general solid tumour practice, running laboratory and clinical research programmes. The third edition of his medical student reference book on oncology, entitled ‘Lecture Notes on Oncology’, will be published in 2014.
