My current Private and Medico- Legal Practice:

a). Clinical:

I have worked in private practice in London for over the last 20 years. My original admitting privileges were at the Cromwell Hospital. I have developed a team approach to private practice and have formed a consortium, ‘rapid access gynaecology’ to provide the best imaging and diagnostic care. I run several clinics a week and one operating list.

I currently consult at 25 Harley St, the Smart Clinic, and also at Weymouth St. I am the visiting Gynaecologist to the Female clinic. I perform surgery at the Weymouth Clinic, the Cromwell Hospital and Dolan Park Hospital in Birmingham. I am recognised by all the major Insurance Companies

I have a major interest in pelvic pain and endometriosis. I work closely with colorectal, and urological colleagues. I operate on approximately 2-4 patients a month with endometriosis. I also collaborate with leading psychiatrists and counsellors to manage this chronic pelvic pain syndrome.

For over 15 years, I have developed an interest in Genital reconstruction surgery. The Genital Surgical work stemmed from my NHS practice in North London, where I established the first clinic in the world to support women who had been victims of female genital mutilation. This clinic was established in 1997 and, as a result of the support from the late Baroness Rendell, I was an advisor to the revised FGM act of 2003. At the same time, I saw an increasing number of women who were affected by the anatomy of their labia and by the physical and emotional affects. I work closely with psychologists and psychiatrists with these patients.

I practice general gynaecology and am an experienced surgeon. I carry out both open and laparoscopic and endoscopic procedures.

I outline the types of surgery I carry out:

• Minimal access surgery: operative laparoscopies, ovarian cystectomies, oopherectomies and hysteroscopy, and treatment of severe endometriosis.
• Major gynaecological surgery: complex hysterectomy, myomectomies.
• Vaginal surgery: pelvic floor repair (primary and secondary). Vaginal hysterectomy.
• Vaginal and vulval refashioning.
• Endometrial ablation mainly with Novasure technology.
• Versascope technology and endometrial resection.
• Truclear and myosure procedures for fibroid surgery.

My breadth of experience is based on the fact that I spent 10 years as an NHS consultant with a very busy and exciting practice.

In 2014-2015, I returned to the NHS to run a choose and book, fertility clinic and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Margate. This provided me with further NHS surgical exposure and some complex fertility surgery.

I have worked as Medical Advisor to One Health, in Hammersmith to develop post reproductive healthcare services. I have advised them on women’s health issues, but I do not practice there.

I am currently the Medical Director of the Female Health clinic in Hampshire. This clinic is combining a spa approach to both women’s and men’s health. I will occasionally also see patients in the clinic and will take any surgical procedures to London.

In 2020 at the start of the pandemic, I founded the Sapiencaregroup, an educational platform with my colleagues Mr Sanjeev Silva and Professor Stafford Lightman FRS.

App development: see later in CV. I am working with the Tommy’s and am a director Caretek medical.

 

b). Medico-Legal Work:

I established my legal practice in 2006, and in 2007 I attended the Bond Solon, and Expert Witness training courses. I then became a member of the AVMA panel and a member of the Institute of Expert Witnesses. I regularly attend the AVMA; premix training days and teach on several medico legal seminars. I have currently involved in the Obstetric and Birth Injury study day at 7 Bedford Row Chambers, and previously, I have taught on the Middle Temple Advocacy course. I am an MPS panel advisor.

My legal work is varied with experience in both the Civil and Criminal Court. I am an expert for several Coroner’s Courts, and also the General Medical Council. I have also given evidence in the Crown Court and in the Court of Protection.

I normally see 2 medico legal patients a month for condition and prognosis reports. I write between 80-100 reports a year and am now a mentor to new experts. I regularly attend refresher courses, and mentor Consultants new to this work.

Consultant Position at Central Middlesex Hospital and Senior Clinical Research Fellow to Imperial College at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital 1996-2005:

NHLHNHS Trust is one of the busiest Hospitals in London. It currently has 5,200 deliveries, but since there is an extremely poor and ethnically diverse population it is regarded as very ‘high risk’.

When I first arrived at CMH, I was surprised at the number of refugees from North Africa, who had undergone genital mutilation, and that there was no specific service available for them in maternity.

I was also shocked that there was not appropriate parent craft education and postnatal support for a very vulnerable group of patients. There was however an active Maternity Liaison Services Committee which was successful in driving the Trust to recognise the needs of some pregnant women.

Sadly, it was often the case, that politically, a group of transient refugees or immigrants were not the Trust’s priority. This is not unique to North London but is now a National problem.  I chose to work with my patients, GP’s and their communities in order to improve maternity care. Initially, I was able to make significant improvements to the clinical services. The then Trust’s Chairman and Baroness Ruth Rendall supported me.

I then became increasingly worried about the Trust’s lack of support and insight for the Maternity Unit and was particularly concerned that a merger with Northwick Park Hospital would result in a clinical disaster. This was based on my real concerns that there was both a lack of physical and clinical resource; the labour ward and wards did not have the capacity to accommodate more pregnant women and a deep loss of staff morale. This was also the concern of the Maternity Services Liaison Committee.

I raised my fears in 2002 at an extraordinary meeting of the Medical Staff Committee at the hospital. All my colleagues supported me, but the Trust failed to listen. In 2004, I reported these issues to senior management and the Trust and finally to the Health Care Commission having attempted to deal with these issues in-house for 3 years. They were inspecting the hospital after there had been 9 maternal deaths in a very short period of time.

At this stage, the HCC were working for the Trust and even though many of us raised issues surrounding safety and the danger of the unit, the HCC did not introduce special measures, which was my request before several of us left. Subsequent to this, our recommendations were adopted, and more recently the Clinical Director was dismissed by the Trust.

Early in 2005, I went to the HCC  to again raise my concerns. Special measures were eventually introduced in April 2005, following a further maternal death, however, there was no change in the clinical leadership of the Department despite  our concerns It was for this reason I resigned to develop in private practice.

Well Woman African Clinic for victims of female genital mutilation:

I have outlined the work in this clinic in a previous section.

I developed a business plan for a dedicated midwife and interpreter, and I recruited Mr Harry Gordon to work with us in the clinic.  This clinic has now become established and sees up to 20 patients in each clinic, and we have carried out over 300 reversals of circumcision. The work in this clinic was highly regarded by the local PCT, the Department of Health and the Health Care Commission.

The funding was achieved with the support of Mr Mark Brignall, who was the Head of Commissioning at the Department of Health. During the life of the clinic, I also engaged the services of a Midwife Lecturer and a Psychotherapist to work on the very real needs of the patients.

Mr Gordon and I have published our clinical experiences in several journals. I have also spoken at National and International meetings about the work. I am often requested to be an expert witness at  criminal trials where are concerns about FGM.

This was the first  FGM clinic in the UK and became the model for all other units.

Department of Health Community Ethnic Health grant:

In 1999, we were awarded a Department of Health grant to fund the very important work of this clinic, and we have acted as Advisors to the WHO on female mutilation. The clinic’s work is diverse ranging from reversing circumcision for young women before marriage to sorting out the complex medical issues of refugees with multiple pathologies.

The success of the clinic was because there are excellent link workers, who are respected in the Somali community, and that the clinic has been run by 2 consultants and a senior midwife. We have offered a family planning service and also a counselling service.

2003: Genital Mutilation Act:

In 2002, Harry Gordon and I were invited by Baroness Rendall to advise her on the House of Lords bill which was passed in 2003. In 2008, I wrote an article about this work in the Clinical Risk journal.

Labour Ward :

I also had 2 maternity unit sessions at the hospital, where I taught the junior doctors and midwives practical aspects of labour ward management and maternal medicine. I also organised debriefing sessions following a stillbirth or untoward clinical accident. I was also was responsible for the inpatient antenatal care. I held a weekly maternal medicine teaching session.

TEACHING AND ACADEMIC:

Since I qualified, I have always been involved in teaching. I enjoyed both teaching and organising topics for discussion.  I was actively involved in teaching the medical students, SHOs and the midwives. While I worked in Cambridge, I was responsible for the undergraduate teaching programme, and the final MB exams. I supervised the MB PhD students at Trinity and Downing College and organised the Rosie Bourn Hall Reproductive Medicine seminars in Cambridge.

Between 1991-1998, I ran a successful MRCOG course, which was based at the Cromwell Hospital I and was then based at Central Middlesex Hospital. I have taught on the Dartford Hospital and Northwick Park Hospitals DRCOG courses.

I have been an external examiner in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at University College and Imperial College.

In 2004, I was awarded the Overseas Doctors Association Mentoring prize for the work I have carried out supporting overseas trainees in starting a career in the NHS.

I ran the postgraduate meetings at the Portland Hospital. I am a trained appraiser both in the NHS and private sector and was  part of the FIPO working party into consultant appraisal.

I am now on the management group of Caretek Medical, and with Professor Philip Steer have developed clinical algorithms for the App.

Sapiencaregroup 2020 onwards

At the onset of the pandemic, Professor Lightman, Sanjeev Silva and I decided to set up an educational platform to help the medical profession and society come to terms with the frightening issues, and problems which we were and still are facing. We have made a series of medical webinars. We also are a medical pressure group.

We have developed a very large database, and also have an influential advisory board. We are currently working with Professor Jerome Kim on the potential market for Chinese vaccines in Europe.

As a result of our concerns for our BAME colleagues, I was the lead author on a paper about BAME risk in Health care workers. This paper was published in Patient Safety and Clinical Risk.

In 2004, I was awarded the Overseas Doctors Association Mentoring prize for the work I have carried out supporting overseas trainees in starting a career in the NHS.

I ran the postgraduate meetings at the Portland Hospital. I am a trained appraiser both in the NHS and private sector and was  part of the FIPO working party into consultant appraisal.

I am now on the management group of Caretek Medical, and with Professor Philip Steer have developed clinical algorithms for the App.

Medical Advisor to Mount Carmel Medical-Southern Ireland 2006-7:

Over this 2-year period, I worked as Medical Advisor to Harlequin Healthcare and now Mount Carmel Medical, recruiting managers and senior consultant staff and writing governance guidelines. I was responsible for restructuring Aut Even Hospital in Kilkenny, and working with the CEO of the Company, Mr Joe Kelly.

ADMINISTRATION:

I was President of the doctor’s mess at Edgware Hospital, and worked closely with the Medical Manpower Committee. I re-organised the representation of the junior staff to the management and negotiated the refurbishment of the doctor’s mess.  During my WellBeing Fellowship, I set up and co-ordinated the London Pre-eclampsia study group.

I was a co-founder with James J. Walker & Gus Dekker of the European Reproductive Vascular Workshop. We have had 5 highly successful meetings in Leeds and in Amsterdam, and I have organised the third meeting, which was held in Park Royal in June 1997

I work as the Medical Director of  the Female Clinic and support the executive with clinical advice.

As a founding partner of Caretek Medical, I work directly with the CEO Terry Hook and Professor Phil Steer, our clinical director. The project is now at beta testing.

Sapiencaregroup is again another start up, and I work alongside our moderator Professor Stafford Lightman, and Sanjeev Silva on organising webinars on medicine, covid and society. Our website is Sapiencaregroup.com. We work closely with Zoom UK and have built up a faculty of International authorities.

Hospital and National Committees:

  • I was a member of the R & D committee, the Drugs and Therapeutics Committee and the Transfusion Committee of the hospital. I chaired the guidelines committee for the Maternity Unit.
  • I have been  a reviewer for the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
  • I have served on the editorial board of Reproductive Vascular Medicine.  I have been a reviewer for the Tommy’s campaign.  I was an active at the CMH Medical Staff Committee.  I was the London West Representative for the Hospital Consultants Specialist Association.
  • I chaired the Portland Hospital’s CME committee and ran the education programme.
  • I have been  a member of the London Consultants’ Association and an appraiser for the Hospital group.

Fundraising:

Well-being Training Fellowship1993-1995:

I was awarded the Wellbeing Training Fellowship by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in May 1993.  The aim of the project was to investigate endothelial cell function in pre-eclamptic and normotensive pregnancy. I received a commendation from the WellBeing Scientific Committee for my work. I developed clinical training in Doppler ultrasound. I also developed a wide range of laboratory-based skills. I was taught both umbilical and placental lobule in vitro perfusion. I learnt radioimmunoassay techniques for cyclic GMP and prostacyclin, and tissue culture techniques. I used chemiluminescence to measure nitrite and nitrate. I also set up an assay for nitric oxide synthase in placental tissues. I set up a placental RNA library and performed reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), DNA gel purification and sequencing.  I also developed skills in immunohistochemical localisation of nitric oxide synthase in placental tissues. I used high performance liquid chromatography to measure the placental aminogram.

I have presented my work both at national and at international meetings.  I was a Plenary Speaker at the Tox Talks in San Francisco in 1995 and at the International Society of the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy in Seattle in 1996.  More recently I have lectured on the genetics and the medical disorders associated with pre-eclampsia.

British Heart foundation:

Genetics of pre-eclampsia 1997- 2001:

In 2002, I finished a British Heart Foundation grant with Kevin O’Shaughnessy, who is a Clinical Pharmacologist in Cambridge.  We had  been funded to collect sibling pairs, affected with pre-eclampsia and to carry out a series of candidate gene studies.  We have collected 85 sibling pairs and have carried out a series of candidate gene studies. We currently have the largest series of affected sibling pairs in the world.

We have submitted abstracts on our current work to the SGI and to the British Fetal Maternal Medicine Society meeting, and our papers have been published in international journals.

We have been fortunate to have a supplementary grant from the BHF to allow our technician to study for a PhD.  We employed a full-time midwife, who has been very successful in recruiting the sibling pairs.  We have carried out a major study on NOS111, MTHFR and Factor V Leiden Point Mutation, GP111a and prothrombin we have also established that there is concordancy in twins for pre-eclampsia. We have published 4 major papers in high impact journals.

African Well woman service 1998 onwards:

In June 1998, Mr Harry Gordon and I were awarded a Department of Health grant to develop an R and D research programme to assess the role of a clinic for women from Northern Africa who have been victims of genital mutilation. This grant has initially been awarded for 3 years.  Our aim is to encourage reversal of female circumcision either prior to pregnancy or early in the second trimester.  Mr Gordon, who coordinates the project, is the WHO advisor on female circumcision.  The clinic has become popular with the local population, and we have now demonstrated that reversal is ethnically acceptable. We have also shown that 80% of women have an intact clitoris.  Our current work is to assess how to reduce clitoral scarring.  We set up a family planning clinic and a psychosexual clinic for the Somalian population. These

projects have now been completed. We employed Sarah Collings as our psychologist.  We have presented our work at the British Society of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology, British Fetal Maternal Medicine conference, European Contraception conference and at the World Sexology conference.

Tommy’s campaign 2000 -2002:

I have been a collaborator with the Tommy’s campaign current project, Premet.  Prof Poston, the Director of Research at the Tommy’s campaign, has provided a midwife to recruit patients at risk of preterm labour from my antenatal clinic.

Funding from Local R and D committee:

Caretek Medical 2015 onwards :            £190,000

Caretek Medical:

I am the Senior Medical advisor on this start up pregnancy App. This  App has been developed by a group of clinicians, with Professor Philip Steer leading the clinical data input. This is a start-up, and the company is currently in the exciting Beta testing stages of the App development.

The app was my vision, and I am fortunate to be supported by Professor Steer, and Terry Hook, a software engineer and programmer. The app essentially empowers women in pregnancy. We have had funding from private investors and Innovate.

Career plans:

I am a specialist gynaecologist with a particular interest in pelvic pain, endometriosis and vaginal reconstruction, and psychosomatic aspects of gynaecology.

I believe my CV demonstrates that I am a very experienced clinician and a good communicator, with an interest in both medicine and medico-legal law.

As part of an  ‘App team’ alongside Prof Philip Steer, and Sir Sarum Arulkumaran,  I have helped develop a fully comprehensive pregnancy app for mothers to be better supported in pregnancy. I developed the idea for this app and recruited my clinical colleagues. We have completed the proof of conduct stage.

As I have demonstrated in my CV, I am a well-connected and experienced doctor with a  lifelong interest in education. This is why I choose to set up Sapiencaregroup.com. I believe I have the knowledge and experience to help the RCOG develop its Webinar platforms.

Hobbies: I am married to a dentist, and we have 2 adult children. I am a tennis fanatic and a very poor sailor. I enjoy the theatre and music. I play the violin. I established a co-existence Tennis charity in the UK 2 years ago (The UK Friends of Freddie Krivine), and am currently the UK chair.
