What my patients have said ...

Dear Mr Tailor... I am writing to thank you and your team for the care you gave me during my stay at St Peters and to admit that you were right and I was wrong!

Under & Postgraduate Training

My undergraduate training was at Kings College School of Medicine & Dentistry in London and I qualified in 1991. I spent an extra year at Medical School to gain a First Class Honours degree in BSc.

After qualifying, I spent a year doing my pre-registration house job in London hospitals and then joined a 2 year SHO rotation in obstetrics & gynaecology in London. During this phase I successfully passed Part I of the RCOG (Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists) exam at my first attempt.

I subsequently entered a 2 year research programme under the supervision of Prof Stuart Campbell and Prof William Collins. During this phase I learnt to carry out pelvic scanning and devised some novel modelling techniques to discriminate cancerous and non-cancerous ovarian cysts which I later went on to publish. I also gained extensive experience in ovarian cancer screening especially in those with a family history for this cancer.

After completing my research, I became a specialist registrar in obstetrics & gynaecology rotating through hospitals in London and Essex regions over a 4 year period. During this phase, I successfully passed Part II of the RCOG exam at my first attempt and thus gaining the MRCOG credentials.

After completing this routine O & G training I was successful in securing a rare position in gynaecological oncology subspecialty training programme for 3 years. On completion of this, I became a fulltime consultant in gynaecological oncology in Guildford and Chertsey, Surrey.
