About me

Stephen is a Health Foundation Leadership Fellow and Interim Clinical Lead for Obstetrics and Gynaecology at University Hospitals of North Tees and Hartlepool.

At the time of his fellowship, Stephen was Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Clinical Director for North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust.

Stephen came to medicine later in his career. Having already enjoyed a career in banking, public relations and marketing, he graduated from Leeds University with a MB ChB in 1997. He then undertook his junior doctor rotation posts in the North East before being appointed to his post as a consultant in obstetrics and gynaecology in 2006 with clinical lead responsibility for the labour ward. He also ran the maternal medicine service at the University Hospital of North Tees in Stockton-on-Tees.

Stephen was also the Clinical Director for his department, a managerial role to which he was recruited to at a relatively early stage in his medical career. In this role, Stephen was involved in planning obstetric and gynaecological patient care at a new hospital building which will involve combining the services of two sites. He was also actively involved in the development of community gynaecological health services in partnership with primary care in line with Darzi aspirations. Stephen found his previous career experience is of great value in this work.

Stephen had previously benefited from leadership training during enrolment on the Fit to Lead programme established by the British Association of Medical Managers.

Stephen also has an advanced diploma in obstetric ultrasound from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
