I provide a leadership role in Perineal care within Obstetrics and Gynaecology and co-lead within Urogynaecology at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital, Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
I am an active member of many renowned Societies and Institutes.
I am a Fellow member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. I am member of the British and European Society of Urogynaecology.
I am also a member of the International Urogynaecology Association (IUGA) and an active member of the Education Committee of IUGA.
