Background

I pursued my medical graduation and post graduation studies from the prestigious premier tertiary referral centre, Christian Medical College and Hospital, Vellore, India from 1993 till 2006. I was offered a Consultant position in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at CMC, Vellore, which I took up from 2006-2009.

Having since relocated to the East Midlands, UK in November, 2009, I underwent retraining and completed the CCT in April, 2016. I have been in a Consultant capacity in the NHS since November 2015, initially at Chesterfield Royal Hospital and presently at the tertiary referral centre at Derby.

I have more than 18 years of broad based experience in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and am an avid researcher and have more than 20 publications in peer-reviewed journals. I regularly teach medical graduates and post graduate trainees and am an examiner for the final MRCOG exams at the RCOG, London. I am a member of the British Society of Urogynaecology and partake in the national database. My special interests include care of women with pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence and minimal access laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery, which I pursue in my present role as Consultant in Obstetrics and Urogynaecology in the NHS.

Biography

Andrew Phillips graduated from University of Bristol in 2005. He initially trained in the South-West before transferring to the East Midlands to complete his basic training. He underwent sub-specialist training in gynaecological oncology at the Pan-Birmingham Gynaecological Cancer Centre, Birmingham before returning to take up a consultant post in Derby.

He has a special interest in cytoreductive surgery in advanced ovarian cancer, minimal access surgery for gynaecological malignancies, risk reduction in patients at an increased risk of developing gynaecological cancer and medical ethics. 

His research has focused on quality standards in the treatment of advanced ovarian cancer. He is the lead for gynaecological cancer in the trust. 

Married with 3 children, he is a keen climber and surfer - both of which are in short supply in the East Midlands!
