I am a consultant oncoplastic breast surgeon at NHS Lanarkshire and NHS Forth Valley. I previously trained at the Edinburgh Breast Unit, one of the busiest departments in Europe. I worked under Prof Mike Dixon OBE, who is highly regarded across the world as a pioneer in the field of breast conservation, endocrine therapy and complex breast reconstruction. In 2017/18 I undertook an oncoplastic fellowship with the outstanding firm at Frimley Park Hospital, Surrey. I am a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh in General & Breast Surgery and am on the GMC specialist register. I graduated from Edinburgh University Medical School, including a year doing an intercalated BSc (Hons) in Pathology, and then 2 years of foundation doctor training at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, I was awarded a national training number in general surgery in south east Scotland. I gained a breadth of experience across general surgery including vascular, upper GI, colorectal and emergency surgery. I have been fortunate to train under several internationally renowned experts including Mr Steve Nixon (pioneer of laparoscopic/keyhole surgery), Prof Malcolm Dunlop (world expert in colorectal cancer) and the late Prof Ken Fearon (regarded as the father of enhanced recovery after surgery).
