I qualified in medicine at the University of Malta in 1992. I worked as a junior doctor in Malta and then trained in histopathology and cytopathology in the West Midlands Deanery. My first consultant post was in Redditch, between 2004 and 2016. I started working at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust in 2016. I am the pathology lead for the Trust in Bowel Cancer Screening.
