Changing of the Guard
It gives me great pleasure to write this introduction having been both honoured and delighted to have become your Patron. I realise I have some very big boots to fill, I have known Dan Wood as a friend and colleague since we both sat in a lab doing research together some 20 years ago. I also know the value he placed on Mitrofanoff Support as a community and information source for both patients and healthcare workers which have included some of my own patients. It was lovely to attend my first support day last autumn and find one of my own patients, in whom I will do a Mitrofanoff channel very shortly, had turned up too. I think he was more surprised to see me than I was to see him! He gave the support day a glowing report, particularly having the opportunity to chat to people with Mitrofanoffs about what it is really like.
So to introduce myself, I am a consultant Urological Surgeon working at Guy’s and St Tomas’ Hospital, just South of the Thames in London, for 10 years now. As
