As a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, I have been involved in providing expert reports or assessing clinical risk for over 10 years. I attend the Medico-Legal Society meetings and AVMA conferences, I write legal reports as well as giving evidence and also as working as a single joint expert.

I was responsible for the re-writing of the Female Genital Mutilation Act in 2003.  I recently published an article about Female Genital Mutilation in the Medico-Legal Journal, Clinical Risk.

I am on the AVMA Panel and a member of the Expert Witness Institute. I also am on the MPS Panel for the UK and Ireland and have acted as an Expert Witness for West London and Southwark Coroner's Court and for Maidstone.  I have prepared reports for both civil and more recently child protection, the court of protection and criminal trials.

My reports are about two-thirds Claimant and one-third Defence. My areas of expertise include specialist Obstetrics and Gynaecology which is related to my medical practice. I am a nationally recognised expert on hypertension in pregnancy (see publication list) and on female genital mutilation. I was recently the defence expert in recent Bristol FGM trial in February 2018, and a murder trial in Birmingham in November 2018. I act as a mentor for other Gynaecologists, who have a medico-legal practice.

My area of interest includes:

  • Obstetrics and Obstetric Surgery
  • Complications of Pregnancy and Childbirth
  • Female Genital Mutilation
  • Thrombosis and Thrombophilia including Recurrent Miscarriage
  • Gynaecology and Gynaecological surgical problems
  • Consent issues in Obstetrics and Gynaecology
