In collaboration with the MAS Nurse Specialist and my urological colleague, Mr I Anjum, audited and published results in a peer review journal were published (Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology) Vol 23, No.3, May 2003)
  2. I have saved Milton Keynes Hospital and District many thousands of pounds by updating and applying surgical skills based on new surgical techniques that have been accredited and used for day care and short stay patients, freeing up beds for other more complex procedures. I have served recently as Clinical Director of the Directorate of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at Milton Keynes Hospital NHS Trust.
  3. I lecture widely throughout the United Kingdom and internationally on my surgical invention for control of maternity haemorrhage. This was first described and published in the British Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology in 1977.

The details are featured in textbooks for post-graduate education for midwives and doctors on this subject. The suture has also featured in dramas such as the BBC’s Holby City and the American TV drama ER, highlighting a new method of haemorrhage control.
