I am a therapeutic radiographer working at University College London Hospital for the past 16 years and my specialisms are in gynaecological and haematological cancers. Prior to this my background is in health research and I have worked with the Bangladeshi community in chronic disease management. I was born with a cleft lip and palate and was a patient of Brian Sommerlad for many many years. My family are originally from Bangladesh and I have been involved in the Bangladesh project with CLEFT.
