Profile

I qualified from the University of Sheffield in 1997. Following basic surgical training in Sheffield I performed research in the field of prostate cancer metastasis towards an MD thesis at the University of Sheffield.

I undertook urological training within the Yorkshire and Humber deanery and was appointed as a consultant urologist in 2013. I am currently undertaking a Masters in Education at the University of Sheffield.

In 2016 I commenced work within the Academic Unit of Medical Education as a senior clinical lecturer and also work as a consultant urologist at Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

Teaching activities

In foundation clinical skills I teach on how to examine the GI/GU system as well as on how to take a medication history/prescribing.

In Phase 3b and Phase 4 I teach on prescribing, drug errors and prescribing safety assessment preparation.

I am keen to incorporate prescribing learning into all clinical encounters for student doctors.

Professional activities

I currently oversee the pharmacology and prescribing strand which spans the whole MBChB course and I am clinical lead for the Prescribing Safety Assessment (PSA).
