Following gaining MRCP while working in Royal United Hospital, Bath I went on to work in GUM in Chelsea and Westminster at SHO level to get experience of the specialty and decide if this was the career for me. I joined GUM specialty training in Bristol and following CCT worked for a few months as a locum consultant in Salisbury before taking up a substantive consultant post in Weymouth in April 2012.
I provide outpatient care for patients with HIV. I have a special interest in young people and lead the young person's service in Weymouth.
See https://sexualhealthdorset.org/clinics for details. I only undertake clinics at Sexual Health Dorset @ Weymouth.
I run a clinic in Blandford Community Hospital every Thursday, otherwise I am based in Weymouth Monday-Wednesday.

Sexual health is commissioned by the local authorities, and there is a national move to integration of GUM and contraceptive services. In 2018, sexual health services across Dorset integrated as Sexual Health Dorset, with DHC as the lead provider subcontracting DCH and RBCH.
In September 2020, the clinic in Weymouth moved from The Park Centre for Sexual Health, where we had been based for over 20 years, to the next door building. The contraceptive team from Dorchester also moved to the new premises, called Sexual Health Dorset @ Weymouth.
The service offers STI testing for people who live in Dorset through our partnership with Sexual Health:24 https://sh24.org.uk/
