Appointment of a new consultant in women’s health

Monday, 12 December 2016

A new consultant in women’s health – know more formally as obstetrics and gynaecology – has recently begun working at Noble’s Hospital.

Mrs Rehana Zaman, who undertook her full training in the East of England, is a skilled clinician with over a decade of experience. 

Mrs Zaman has worked in large specialist hospitals as well as a busy district general hospital.  This has given her excellent experience in all areas of women’s health, including complicated and high risk obstetrics and gynaecology. 

Mrs Zaman is an accredited colposcopist (using a special microscope to perform a detailed examination of the cervix) and in addition to her work as a general obstetrician and gynaecologist she will lead the colposcopy services on the Island. Her other areas of special interest are minimal access surgery, advanced labour ward practice and medical education.

As chairperson for one of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists international liaison groups, Mrs Zaman helps to facilitate education and training links with Bangladesh.

Commenting on her appointment, Mrs Zaman said:

'What attracted me to the role was the opportunity to provide a more personal level of care.  This is particularly important to me, as it is for all doctors, but something that is increasingly difficult to achieve in England’s NHS.  There’s a busy workload at Noble’s Hospital, of course, but there is also time to get to know patients a bit better and really understand their needs.

'When I saw the job advert for Noble’s Hospital it piqued my interest and after a visit to the Island and the opportunity to meet the consultant team and other colleagues I decided to apply for the job.

'I also realised what a beautiful place the Island is and the quality of life it can offer me and my family.  So far I have been very happy here.  Everyone has been so helpful and welcoming and it’s a good working environment.'

The appointment of Mrs Zaman as a consultant, the first in six years for women’s health on the Island, brings the permanent team of consultant gynaecologists in the Isle of Man back up to four, following the recent retirement of Mr Bob Fayle:

  • Mrs Michele Moroney – Consultant Gynaecologist with a specialist interest in fertility
  • Mr Mike Divers – Consultant Gynaecologist with a specialist interest in urogynaecology
  • Mr Tarun Ghosh – Consultant Gynaecologist with a specialist interest in laparoscopic surgery
  • Mrs Rehana Zaman – Consultant Gynaecologist with a special interest in colposcopy.
