Dr Elizabeth Bonney MD MRCOG Consultant Obstetrician Honorary Senior Lecturer

Dr Elizabeth Bonney is a Consultant Obstetrician at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Leeds.
After graduation from the University of Leeds Medical School in 2002, she progressed to specialty training in the Yorkshire Deanery. Between 2010 and 2012 she took time out of training to concentrate on her research into the prediction and prevention of preterm birth. This was done in collaboration with the University of Leeds and the Maternal and Fetal Health Research Centre, University of Manchester and focused on using proteomic and multiplex analysis along with assessing clinical risk factors. She attained an MD from the University of Leeds with a thesis titled ‘The Prediction and Prevention of Preterm Birth”.
Lizzy, in conjunction with her colleague Mr Nigel Simpson, runs the prematurity clinics at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals. They look after women from the Yorkshire region and are specialists in the management of preventing preterm birth, including the insertion of transvaginal (Shirodkar) and transabdominal sutures. In addition, they review women who have recently delivered very early babies to arrange management plans for future pregnancies.
