Doctor returns to Grimsby in consultant role

An obstetrics and gynaecology consultant has joined the Trust bringing with him a wealth of experience.

Mr Mohammed Abdullah.

Mr Mohammed Abdullah chose to return to Grimsby hospital, where he spent time during his training, as he had a good relationship with staff on the labour ward and gynaecology wards.

He has also previously worked at University Hospital of Wales, Hull University Teaching Hospital, Scarborough General Hospital and York Teaching Hospital. He was a trainee in obstetrics and gynaecology at East Yorkshire Deanery.

Mr Abdullah studied at the University of Mosul in Iraq in 2003 (MchB) and the University of Wales in Cardiff in 2008 (MSc). His advanced clinical qualifications include gynae-oncology, labour ward and medical education.

Speaking about the role, Mr Abdullah said: “I was a trainee in obstetrics and gynaecology for the last eight years. Seven of them were at the East Yorkshire Deanery. I spent three-and-a-half years of my training at Grimsby hospital. I worked as a junior registrar from 2012 to 2014, before returning in August 2018 as a final year trainee ST7. I also worked for two years in Hull as a senior registrar.

“I am looking forward to working with the team to achieve a high standard colposcopy service and also working with Hull York Medical School (HYMS) to facilitate teaching medical students. I also have a special interest in line with the national Better Births project, which sees women given a named midwife as a dedicated point of contact.

“I was also appointed as the new departmental Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) tutor and I started this role in January. I am looking forward to bringing in some changes for simulation and ultrasound training.”

His special interests include gynae-oncology, minimal access surgery, colposcopy and medical education.
