Biography

Sarah has worked full-time as a Consultant Obstetrician since 2008 and is based at the Mid-Yorkshire NHS Trust. This is a busy district general hospital Trust covering 3 sites (Pinderfields, Dewsbury and Pontefract) with 6000 deliveries a year and it serves a large population of women with complex medical and social issues. She is the Maternal Medicine Lead in this Trust and runs a weekly maternal medicine clinic plus a weekly diabetes antenatal clinic. As part of her role, Sarah sees high risk obstetric patients for pre-pregnancy counselling, in antenatal clinic and participates in the consultant on-call rota on delivery suite. Sarah also develops and maintains links with the Yorkshire and Humber Maternal Medicine network to ensure that all women in her unit with complex pregnancies receive the right care in the right place at the right time.

In August 2021, Sarah was appointed as the Regional Lead Obstetrician for the North East and Yorkshire and contributes to development of maternity services locally, regionally and nationally, supporting implementation of the National Maternity Transformation Program and recommendations from the Ockenden and East Kent reports about maternity services. From July 2021 Sarah has been the independent chair of the Northwest Networked Maternal Medicine Board, working with key stakeholders and the wider team to oversee implementation of this important national maternity safety ambition.

Sarah grew up in Newcastle upon Tyne and completed a degree in Physiology at Leeds University in 1993 before going to Medical School at Newcastle University, from where she qualified in 1998. She then completed her Obstetric training in the Northern Deanery and was appointed as a Consultant Obstetrician at The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough in 2007. Sarah enjoyed living in Yorkshire while at university, so was delighted when she was appointed as a Consultant at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust in January 2011, where she set up the Obstetric-Renal service. In November 2022 Sarah left Leeds after being appointed as a Consultant at the Mid-Yorkshire NHS Trust and continues to develop the maternal medicine service here and the wider region.
