Welcome

I trained and researched in obstetrics and gynaecology in Brisbane, Queensland and Auckland, New Zealand between 1973 and 1978. I spent two decades as a Clinical Associate Professor of Reproductive Medicine at the University of Newcastle, NSW and Director of Obstetrics at the John Hunter Hospital.

I retired from full-time practice and now offer surgical assistance at the Baringa Private Hospital. I teach medical students at the Rural School of Medicine in Coffs Harbour, NSW.  For copies of my curriculum vitae click on one of the following:

  5. Well, hardly my fault if you disappear from the face of the earth. We even tried sending a card to your mother’s address in the hope it might find you. We are heading to the UK at the end of the month and will be in Sheffield for 2 weeks before heading to Sussex, France then the Isle of Man.
