Meet Our Medstars


Medstars met with consultant gynaecologist and obstetrician, Mr Joseph Aquilina, at The Royal London Hospital. Joe provides a “one-stop” service with immediate access to ultrasound scanning in both NHS and private settings. This allows him, in 95% of cases, to reach a diagnosis and start treatment after just one consultation. Despite his non-stop “one-stop” clinic, Joe still made time for a quick chat…

Medstars met with consultant ophthalmic surgeon, Mr Mark Wevill, at the Westbourne Centre in Birmingham. Besides Mark’s obvious merit, what else differentiates him from the rest you ask? Well, Mark sometimes kayaks to work! So no chance of getting stuck in gridlock on the M6. He just has to watch out for the occasional unruly feathered friend… Over to you Mark.

Medstars spoke with Birmingham-based orthopaedic surgeon, Mr Marcus Green. Having been a consultant for over 18 years, Marcus has acquired a wealth of experience and he performs between 150 and 200 knee and shoulder joint replacements each year. And as if Marcus’ CV isn’t impressive enough, he flies hot air balloons in his spare time! Take it away Marcus…

Medstars loved meeting clinical psychologist, Dr Sukbinder Bilkhu, at her Birmingham home. Sukie is a specialist in the psychology of eating disorders and due to her experience working with both adults and children, she is particularly skilled at dealing with problems arising in adolescence and early adulthood. Now we’ve been introduced, let’s hear from Sukie herself!
