I have been a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist for the last 20 years with a broad NHS and general private practice. I have had a particular interest as a Gynaecologist in pelvic floor injuries after childbirth, and also in minimal access surgery for endometriosis and pelvic pain. In 1998, I established the first clinic for women who were victims of female Genital mutilation. In 2003, together with my colleague Mr Harry Gordon I helped rewrite the 2003 FGM act.
Over the last 15 years I have also developed an interest in Cosmetic Gynaecology, and am frequently instructed on cases to deal with labiaplasty and vaginal surgery.
I also have run a busy Obstetric NHS and Private Practice, and in 1995 was awarded the RCOG WellBeing Training Fellowship for work on Hypertension and Pre-eclampsia. I established the London Pre-eclampsia Group and the Reproductive Vascular Group.
I am now in full time private practice, and run both a clinical and legal practice. I see patients for medico legal consultations in London, Birmingham and Leeds.
With over 12 years experience of medico-legal work, I am trained in report writing, giving evidence in the Crown Court and the Coroners court. I also lecture on these topics. I undertake 100 cases annually, 10% single joint expert, 70% claimant, 20% defendant.
I am a GMC panellist advisor and have acted as an expert to Southwark and Maidstone Coroners Courts, and have provided expert reports to the Court of Protection and the Family and Crown courts.
