About me

I am a Consultant Medical Oncologist at the Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust, Cancer Centre. I have been in post here since 2020. I am a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Portsmouth.

Prior to 2020, I was a Consultant Medical Oncologist at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Harrogate and District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. I also held the post of Clinical Lecturer at the Hull & York Medical School.

I was born and grew up in the UK. After completing medical training at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College, I worked in hospitals in Kent, Essex and London. I completed Medical Oncology training in London and the South East, at The Royal Marsden Hospital, Guys and St Thomas’ and The Kent Oncology Centre.

My BSc is in Human Genetics at UCL. I spent 3 years at The University of Kent lecturing and carrying out cancer research in the field of growth factor receptors. Currently, I am research active and involved with collaborative clinical trials.

My spare time is spent with my family and climbing and swimming to keep fit; I also enjoy reading and guitar.

I specialise in the management and treatment of Thoracic Cancers and Cancers of the Upper GI Tract including HPB.

These cancer sites include: Lung Cancer, Mesothelioma, Thymoma, Cancer of the Oesophagus, Stomach, Pancreas, Bile ducts, Small Intestine and Liver. I also treat NETs (Neuroendocrine Tumours) and have an interest in the treatment of Colorectal Cancer and Cancer of Unknown Origin.

I believe passionately in providing personalised and holistic cancer care, respectful of patients’ wishes and their dignity. Excellent communication with patients and their loved ones, professionalism, kindness, respect and compassion is at the heart of everything I do.
