About

Mr Alexander Taylor is a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, appointed to the Royal Bournemouth Hospital in 2006.

Mr Taylor's training started at the University of Newcastle's Medical School in 1988, graduating in 1993. He originally pursued a career in general practice with training posts in the North of England. He later chose to specialise in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 1996 and worked as a Senior House Officer at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle and Guy's Hospital in London. Both are renowned internationally for their clinical excellence.

He then undertook registrar training in the London Deanery gaining specialist experience in his area of interest which is minimally invasive surgery.

After his appointment at Bournemouth, Mr Taylor set up the minimal access (keyhole surgery) program in gynaecology. This has drastically reduced the time in which patients have to spend in hospital. In addition, he founded one stop clinics for menorrhagia (heavy menstruation) and emergency gynaecology.

Nationally, Mr Taylor is a member of the GMC Equivalence Committee and a Trainer for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG). 

Please note Pregnancy Scanning (in the first trimester only) can be undertaken by Mr Taylor on request.
