During my General Medicine training at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust between 2005 and 2007, I loved caring for cancer patients, hence decided to pursue my career in Oncology.
After securing a competitive training number in Oncology at East Midlands Medical Training Programme – North, I spent 6 years as trainee in various fields of Oncology. During this period, I successfully completed Postgraduate Certificate in Oncology from Newcastle University with distinction, MSc in Oncology from the University of Nottingham with a research project on Pancreatic and Bile Duct cancer, Acute Oncology module from Liverpool University, Management course from Warwick University and Intensive teaching course from the University of Nottingham.
After completing my specialist training in Oncology, I dedicated a few years in Lab based translational research at the University of Nottingham evaluating the role of RecQ helicases DNA repair in Breast Cancer. I was awarded DM Oncology doctorate degree for my work.
In 2015, I was appointed as Consultant in Medical Oncology at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) with specialist interest in the management of Lung, Mesothelioma, Pancreatic, Gall Bladder, Liver, Bile Duct, early Breast and Neuroendocrine tumours. I am also Clinical Governance and Audit lead for Oncology Department at NUH since 2015.
I am actively involved in teaching and research. In 2017, School of Medicine at University of Nottingham awarded me the title of Honorary Clinical Associate Professor in recognition of my research and teaching work. I am module convenor for MSc Oncology course at the University of Nottingham. I am principal investigator for several clinical trials at NUH with track record of recruiting patients into trials. In last 6 years, I have over >20 publications in the well-reputed peer-reviewed scientific journals.
I have good communication skills which is reflected in regular positive feedback provided by my patients ( 5 star rating from 55 reviews in last 6 months).
