Jim English LRCP & SI MB BCh BAO


Consultant Gynaecologist and Pelvic Surgeon

Jim English joined Pyper Medical Services in 2022 having completed the in-person Expert Witness Training program of Inspire MediLaw. Since 1998, he has dedicated his consultant career in Worthing and Brighton to general gynaecological laparoscopic surgery and to complex pelvic surgery for endometriosis including bowel, urinary tract and neurosurgery. After 20 years as an NHS consultant, he was appointed lead surgeon at Endometriose in Balans in the Netherlands, which became the largest centre in Europe dedicated to the treatment of severe endometriosis.

Jim is an alumnus of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and received much of his training at the Rotunda Hospital in Dublin and later at Whipps Cross, St. Bartholomew’s and Chelsea and Westminster Hospitals in London. He served as Lecturer for the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland from 1992 to 1995 and during this time spent two years working in Saudi Arabia where RCSI ran a hospital. He did the groundwork for his thesis in this post and was awarded his MD in 1996.

Jim was appointed as consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at Worthing Hospital in 1998. He spent two years as RCOG District Tutor before becoming Clinical Director and later Director of Women’s and Children’s services. Responsibility was taken for organising audits within the department and for dealing with all clinical complaints. During this period, Worthing Hospital’s perinatal and neonatal mortality rates were in the lowest 5% nationally.

Jim has long contributed to medical research and training. As well as a book chapter, he has published almost 50 papers in peer-reviewed journals. He has presented his work widely and has been a regular speaker at international meetings for many years.

He has taught laparoscopic and endometriosis surgery on several courses in England and Ireland and served as a faculty member and examiner on the MSc program in Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery at the University of Surrey in Guildford for many years.

Jim has served for a total of four years as a council member for the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy and in 2013 organised a joint meeting in Brighton between the British and Irish societies. Jim currently sits on the board of the European Endometriosis League.

He was the first in the United Kingdom to advocate radical surgery in the management of severe endometriosis and was among the first in the UK routinely to perform laparoscopic hysterectomies.
