Educated at Blundell’s School and St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College, he graduated in 1966 prior to training as a General Surgeon and then an Obstetrician/Gynaecologist.  Awarded a Fulbright Scholarship, he undertook a fellowship at the University of South Florida, before returning to his Alma Mater as the first formally trained Gynaecological Oncologist in the UK in 1981.  He was appointed to the Royal Marsden Hospital in 1983. His interests were in radical surgery for ovarian and cervical cancer which led him to developing more conservative fertility-conserving approaches in young women, initially to loud and threatening objections from his senior traditional colleagues. Learning of his Professorial Chair in 1999 whilst competing in the Fastnet Race, he has published over 260 papers in peer review journals, 80 chapters and 4 text books. He retired from clinical practice in December 2015 but continues to provide medico-legal opinions when not travelling across Europe or sailing his boat with his wife Alison in the Greek islands.
