Research

My MD research was carried out in Canada under Prof Mary Hannah at the Perinatal Research Institute of the University of Toronto.

I learnt a huge amount in that setting on research methodology, attending regular meetings at which were discussed the huge multi-centre RCTs with which she was involved. My role at Kingston had a heavy clinical workload and no specific time for research. Since my MD degree, I have had two publications of audit projects with which I was involved – one on decision to delivery interval and the other on the management of breech - which are listed in my publications.
