General election 2015 - Conservative candidate chosen for East Renfrewshire Print E-mail

Published 17th December 2014

David Montgomery has recently been chosen by the Conservative Party to contest the East Renfrewshire seat at the 2015 General Election.

Newsline understands that he currently resides in Dumbreck, Glasgow.

Mr Montgomery's history has been taken from his linkedIn profile.

I am currently Medical Director - Oncology for the UK and Republic of Ireland. In this capacity, I sit on a number of important UK committees and organisations, most notably as industry member for the national Cancer Drugs Fund (nCDF) and on the NCRI scientific meeting programme committee.

I am the Conservative parliamentary candidate for the East Renfrewshire constituency at the 2015 general election.

In addition to my professional experiences, I have completed the diploma in pharmaceutical medicine, hold membership of the faculty of pharmaceutical medicine (MFPM) and I am on the GMC Specialist Register with the specialty of Pharmaceutical Medicine

Prior to industry, I worked in the NHS as a junior doctor, junior surgical trainee, surgical research fellow and finally surgical registrar between 2001 and 2008. I passed the membership exam for the Royal College of Surgeons in Glasgow and continue to hold the MRCS.

My specialist interest was in general surgery and I undertook my research in breast cancer, specifically looking at mechanisms of relapse detection and follow up. I have published extensively in this area, spoken at national and international meetings on the topic and continue to review papers on this subject for major medical journals.

I am a keen cyclist, with an interest in both road cycling and mountain biking. I also collect (and sometimes drink) wine, especially those of Australia and Bordeaux.

Specialties: Oncology, surgical oncology, pharmaceutical medicine
