During my consultant career, I have overseen a large clinical practice, both in general paediatric surgery, neonatal surgery and paediatric urology and I have published papers in all these fields.
I commenced my consultant career as Paediatric Surgeon with a special interest in paediatric urology on 1st of October 1988 in the Central Manchester and Manchester Children’s University Hospitals NHS Trust and was in post in the NHS until 2015 and in private practice until June 2019. I remain in clinical practice as visiting consultant paediatric urologist to the National Archbishop Mikarios Children’s Hospital in Cyprus.
My major interest throughout my clinical career has been the urinary tract and, in particular, urinary tract reconstruction. I was the senior clinician in the Manchester National NCG service for Bladder Exstrophy between 2005 and 2015. My major clinical activity has been in the area of the lower urinary tract, Neuropathic Bladder, Bladder Exstrophy and Hypospadias.
I have been preparing medical reports for over 25 years, both in the area of clinical negligence and personal injury. I have prepared in excess of 200 reports and given evidence both in court and at the GMC.
