Professional Profile

I trained at the Royal Marsden Hospital, Registrar/Senior Registrar rotation from 1993 to 2001. I did a post graduate MD at the Insitute of Cancer Researhc looking at novel molecular therapy in patients with lymphoma and was awarded an MD thesis from the University of London in 2001. I was a locum consultant at the Royal Marsden Hospital for a year before starting in Sussex in 2002.

I specialise in treating patients with lymphoma, those with a full range of gastrointestinal cancers or renal cancers. I work mainly at BSUH but do one day a week at Western Sussex NHS Trust treating gastro-intestinal cancers. I have a particular interest in the management of older patients with cancers.

Personal Profile

To unwind from work, I am a keen amateur cook and enjoy sharing my culinary experiments with my family and friends. I regularly play badminton and ski. I am a National Trust member and also love exploring flea markets. I have recently walked the South Downs way with my son.
