James Rowland has been a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at WWL since 2015. He trained in the North West Deanery.

James underwent specialist training in benign gynaecological surgery and advanced labour ward practice as specialist modules. He also underwent further specialist training via a fellowship programme in order to be able to perform total laparoscopic hysterectomy.

His clinical work mixes a general obstetric service with specialist gynaecology work. He offers a specialist pelvic pain service which has now established links with the pain management service and also a referral pathway for patients with rectovaginal endometriosis to the endometriosis centres.

James currently leads on governance issues within gynaecology and is responsible for delivering the undergraduate education in women's health for students on rotation from Manchester University.
