Clinical oncologist

Special clinical interest in breast cancer.

Dr Ashford pioneered the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) approach, setting up joint clinics in breast cancer, gastro-enterology, urology and haematology, before specialising solely in breast cancer. In 1989 he was a founder member of the breast unit in Windsor, where he was instrumental in setting up one of the first one-stop breast clinics in the UK. In 2005 he became the unit’s Clinical Director, relinquishing this post in 2012 just prior to leaving the NHS.
