Dr Simone Vella

Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist

MD (Malta), MRCOG

Personal profile

I graduated from the University of Malta Medical School in 1995.

I started postgraduate training in Obstetrics & Gynaecology in Malta, moving to Yorkshire in 1999, then to Glasgow, in 2003, where I completed my training. I was awarded a Certificate of Completion of training in 2007 and was appointed Senior Clinical University Teacher by the University of Glasgow and Honorary Consultant in Obstetrics & Gynaecology at Princess Royal Maternity/Glasgow Royal Infirmary. I took a career break, to spend time with my young family and moved to Australia for a year. I returned to full time work in Obstetrics & Gynaecology in 2013 and have been working as a consultant at the Princess Royal Maternity/Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

Although I am an obstetrician, my main interest lies in Gynaecology. I have a regular one stop clinic in the NHS which allows me to see patients with gynaecological complaints such as menstrual disorders or postmenopausal bleeding, perform an examination, a transvaginal ultrasound, and if necessary a hysteroscopy as well as initiate treatment all in the one visit. I am an experienced accredited colposcopist. I cover gynaecological emergencies and complications of early pregnancy. Together with my dermatology colleague Dr Isabelle Hay, I run a multidisciplinary tertiary gynaecology dermatology clinic, where we see women with vulval disorders, which have usually presented with itching or pain, and which have been unresponsive to treatment. We are offering a similar multidisciplinary service at BMI Ross Hall.

I am college tutor for the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists at Princess Royal Maternity and perform appraisals as part of the General Medical Council appraisal and revalidation process for doctors.
