Kim Hinshaw

Kim studied medicine at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and has been a Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist in Sunderland since 1994. He is Director of Research & Innovation and a Visiting Professor at the University of Sunderland.

Kim has clinical interests in high risk pregnancy, labour ward management and early pregnancy loss. In Aberdeen, he was part of the clinical research team that developed medical (ie non-surgical) management for miscarriage, increasing the options available for women who miscarry and prefer to avoid surgery. He is a co-applicant for several nationally-funded early pregnancy trials and leads a clinical research team actively involved in delivering research in both miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy. Outside of medicine he loves his grandson Lewis, watching rugby and (very sadly) his red Ferrari!
