Professional profile

Career Summary

After qualifying in medicine at Worcester College, Oxford, my career path has taken me to Bristol, Norwich and Cambridge before moving to Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea Hospital.

At QCCH, my research into monochorionic twins and also non – invasive fetal ECG resulted in my obtaining a PhD under the guidance of Professor Nick Fisk. I also completed subspeciality training at the Centre for Fetal Care before completing my general training. I was appointed as a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at the Royal Devon and Exeter Foundation NHS Trust in 2003.

Whilst being a subspecialist in fetal medicine and having a busy obstetric practice with regular sessions on delivery suite, I also have a full general gynaecological practice with a special interest in urogynaecology.

I have been a committee member of the British Maternal and Fetal Medicine Society for over 13 years and became its President in 2018.
