I qualified from the University of Cambridge in 1996. After my first jobs I went to Australia, working in the Accident & Emergency Department and the Intensive Therapy Unit before starting the Oxford surgical rotation. I then moved to Bristol to do ear, nose, and throat (ENT) before starting my radiology training. I undertook a breast imaging fellowship in Leeds in 2007 before being appointed as a Consultant Radiologist in Harrogate. I also work at the Breast Screening Unit at York Hospital.
