- Joining date 1995
I was born and brought up in Manchester, England apart from a three year period at school in Cape Town in the Republic of South Africa.
I studied medicine at the Victoria University of Manchester and graduated Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery in July 1982.
My interest in obstetrics and gynaecology was stimulated early on in my career and I became a member of the Royal college of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in 1987. Post-membership training was undertaken in South Africa and Manchester.
I first came to work in private practice in Hong Kong in 1991 and my family and I continue to enjoy living and working here. Our four young children are currently at schools in Hong Kong.
I have been employed at International Doctors Limited since 1995 as a Specialist in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, offering Minimal Access Surgery, Infertility, Cervical pathology and obstetrical care.
My special interest is the investigation and treatment of endometriosis.
I am a Fellow of the Hong Kong College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and have been elected as a Foundation Fellow of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine (Obstetrics and Gynaecology). This Academy has been set up with the purpose of accrediting specialists in Hong Kong.
During the last 5 years I have set up the out-patient endoscopy units at the Matilda and Hong Kong Adventist Hospitals and have had a major role in organizing the Minimal Access Surgery capability at the Hong Kong Adventist Hospital.
I have submitted my experience in hysteroscopic surgery and laparoscopic surgery to the Accreditation Council for Gynaecologic Endoscopy in USA for assessment and this has been examined and found satisfactory for membership.
This qualification is recognized by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology as qualifying for sub-specialty training in Minimal Access Surgery.
I was Deputy Chief of Service-Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the Hong Kong Adventist Hospital from January 2011until July 2015.
In 2013 I completed a Masters degree in Gynaecological Endosopic Surgery at the University of Surrey, Guilford, UK.
My latest hobby is surf skiing.
