I qualified from Guy’s Hospital Medical School, London in 1993 and trained in general medicine in the South East of England. I completed my oncology training in 2003, and was appointed as a Consultant Oncologist in South Wales the same year. Since qualifying as an NHS consultant, I have continued a busy NHS practice, and have vast experience in managing urological and thoracic cancers.
I specialise in the treatment of prostate cancer. My radiotherapy expertise includes proton beam therapy, stereotactic radiotherapy, MR Linac, brachytherapy, and VMAT/IMRT. I treated the first patient in the UK with proton beam therapy in 2018. I have extensive experience in the bespoke treatment of prostate cancer. I organise genomic analysis, theranostics (PSMA-PET) to tailor bespoke treatment plans. My systemic therapy expertise includes chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormonal therapies as well as radioisotopes.
There are a bewildering array of treatment options available for men with prostate cancer. I consider quality of life, particularly continence and sexual function to be of paramount importance. My aim is to provide a clear, understandable and objective opinion to patients at a difficult time in their lives.
I am a strong advocate of clinical research and have published extensively in the field.
