I am a consultant in clinical oncology at UCLH. I trained at St Mary’s Hospital, London and after qualifying spent time working in general medicine both in London and also in Haiti where I saw conventional medicine mixed with voodoo practices. I returned to London to train as a clinical oncologist and during this time developed an interest in urological oncology. Now I have a busy practice in a respected teaching hospital where I work within a multidisciplinary team. I am a trustee of the Prostate Cancer Research Centre and Prostate UK, and the chairman of the British Uro-oncology Group (BUG). I also serve on the Prostate Cancer Charter for Action and the Prostate Cancer Advisory Group for the United Kingdom.
