Dr. Rukhsana Iqbal:
I currently work as a Consultant Obstetrician in Kettering General Hospital. I have had over 14 years experience of looking after mothers with medical conditions like diabetes and mothers who have had problems with their previous pregnancies. At present my work involves general obstetrics, fetal medicine, specialist scanning and invasive procedures (CVS, amniocentesis) for Down's Syndrome or other genetic conditions. I am actively involved in medical student teaching and registrar scan training.
I have many years of experience in specialist ultrasound scans and fetal medicine and have had training from John Radcliffe Hospital at Oxford and King’s College Hospital, London.
Having obtained basic medical training at Dow Medical College Karachi, Pakistan, I have had most of the training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in England. I obtained my MRCOG in 1994 and my obstetric ultrasound diploma in the year 2002 from John Radcliffe at Oxford and invasive procedure accreditation from King’s College Hospital London in 2006.
I am considered a pleasant and approachable individual who takes much pride in their work and strongly believe in patient-centred care. I ensure that I provide high standards of care at all times and that all patients have a satisfying experience under my care. Obtaining patient feedback has allowed me to improve my care and I am fortunate to have had positive feedback on most occasions.
