Mr Jeremy Twigg MBBS MD FRCOG

Consultant Gynaecologist and Gynaecological Oncologist

I am a consultant practising in the NHS appointed 2006. My main practise is as a Gynaecological Oncologist managing and treating women with gynaecological malignancy. I also have a benign practice that includes colposcopy, pelvic pain, endometriosis and heavy menstrual bleeding. I run diagnostic clinics for women referred with suspected cancer and other gynaecological conditions. I was dual accredited by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists / GMC in 2006 and I am on the specialist register of the General Medical Council. I was reaccredited by the BSCCP as a registered colposcopist in 2021.

In total, I have 28 years experience as a gynaecologist working in the UK. My gynaecological oncology practice includes treating women with vulval, vaginal, cervical, ovarian and endometrial cancer. I am an expert robotic minimal access surgeon and I teach new surgeons in roboticic surgery. I treat NHS patients using traditional open, laparoscopic and robot assisted minimal access surgery.

I undertake in excess of 100 procedures a year for benign and malignant gynaecological conditions including total robotic hysterectomy, total radical hysterectomy and pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy. I also perform open surgery, for example for patients with ovarian cancer.

I was revalidated by the General Medical Council in February 2020. I am registered with the UK Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists for continuing professional development and have been appraised annually since my appointment. I am up to date with CPD requirements. I am an examiner for the Part 3 MRCOG Exam and am a recognised trainer within my specialty and sub specialty. In my previous post I was Chair of the Northern Cancer Alliance Network and Network GO NCRI Lead for Research. I also worked within Health Education England and was involved in training in the UK Foundation Training Programme. I have a PG Cert in Medical Education and was a Foundation Programme Director for the Deanery.

I can act as an expert witness in negligence cases involving a range of gynaecological conditions, including the preparation of medico legal reports and appearing in court. My specialist areas of expertise include:

  • • gynaecological cancer
  • • menstrual disturbance
  • • fertility issues
  • • pelvic pain
  • • ovarian cysts
  • • uterine fibroids
  • • endometriosis
  • • cervical pathology

I have attended training courses in medico legal report preparation (Professional Solutions), mental capacity act and consent training (Bond Solon) and have presented to the AVMA. My medico legal practice focuses on delays and failures in diagnosis, the impact of latency on treatment and prognosis and misadventure during surgical treatment. I have produced reports for claimants and for defendants including the GMC, NHSLA, Scottish Procurator Fiscal, Welsh Health Board, MDU and Irish Legal System, many of the latter in relation to the Irish cervical screening scandal.

I produce medico legal reports compliant with M.o.J documentation including the Protocol for the Instruction of Experts to give Evidence in Civil Claims (‘Protocol’), Civil Procedure Rules Part 35 Experts and Assessors (‘CPR35’), Practice Direction Part 35 Experts and Assessors (‘PD35') and Practice Direction Pre-Action Conduct (‘PD Pre-Action Conduct’). I also produce Screening Reports where there is uncertainty regarding breach and causation which can then be upgraded later to meet MoJ compliance. I am have experience of joint report writing and case conference with Counsel and other Experts. I started as an expert witness in 2016 and I produce approx. 25 reports per year. My current workload is split 70% plaintiff to 30% defendant. I can supply my full or abridged CV on request.
