- Professional profile:
I have a large urogynaecology practice with over 800 new referrals each year and 500 urodynamic investigations. I am supported by a team consisting of a nurse practitioner, physiotherapist and speciality registrar and/or research fellow. My service is based on a one stop diagnostic service with assessment and treatments plans agreed at the first visit. I perform 150-200 prolapse procedures and 150-200 operations for stress incontinence annually, amongst other general gynaecology and obstetrics. I have an ongoing audit including 2500 TVT procedures. I have set up a local multidisciplinary team meeting (MDT) for incontinence as suggested by NICE. I also run a regional MDT (Kent wide) and attend a local urology/urogynaecology MDT. I have introduced new services for urogynaecology including intravesical botox and posterior tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) for refractory overactive bladder. I oversee the bladder instillation service.
I also have a keen interest in performing research and I have published over 70 peer reviewed publications including book chapters, reviews and original articles in high impact journals. I have taken part in a number of commercial drug company sponsored research projects eg trials involving duloxetine, solifenacin, mirabegron and tolterodine.
Nationally, as Chairman of the British Society of Urogynaecology (BSUG), I have worked on producing areas of research for future study (with the James Lind Alliance). I also represent BSUG on the Pelvic Floor Clinical Study Group. I represent BSUG negotiations regards consultant outcomes with HQIP. I have obtained (Jan 2014) recognition of the high quality service that we provide by achieving unit accreditation from BSUG (one of only 15 such units in the UK). I hold a silver national clinical excellence award (April 2015) for my work in research.
