30 January 2012 at 12:48
A consultant with specialist interest in preventing cervical cancer has been appointed to Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust.

Helen Bradshaw (right), who joins as Consultant Gynaecologist and Obstetrician, trained at Sheffield, London and Liverpool. She was previously a senior registrar at Liverpool Women’s Hospital.

Miss Bradshaw will be the Trust’s new colposcopy lead and be based at Ormskirk hospital. The main goal of colposcopy is to prevent cervical cancer by detecting precancerous lesions early and treating them.

She joins fellow consultant in obstetrics and gynecology Shaireen Aleem who was recruited to the Trust last summer. Miss Aleem specialises in urogynaecology, treating women who have incontinence of urine and/or prolapse of the womb, bladder or bowel.

Miss Bradshaw, who lives in Wirral and is the mother of two boys, aged four and seven, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity. I have been really impressed by the friendly, clean environment at Ormskirk.

“I am looking forward to developing the colposcopy service in line with national guidelines to ensure that women have the best possible experience and the most up to date treatment.”
