Special Interests
I studied for my medical degree at the Medical College of St Bartholomew's Hospital. Following house jobs, I worked as a Medical SHO on the St George's hospital rotation and then as a Specialist Registrar on the North West Thames Gastroenterology rotation.

I trained in colonoscopy at the Wolfson unit for endoscopy at St Mark's hospital, the UK's only specialist hospital for colorectal disease. The Wolfson unit is a national colonoscopy training centre and an accredited bowel cancer screening centre. I now teach on colonoscopy training courses in the South West and am lead clinician for endoscopy training in my Trust.

I spent two and a half years at St Mark's Hospital, Harrow as a research fellow studying the clinical features and genetics of hyperplastic polyposis which resulted in an MD thesis in 2005. During my research, I developed an interest in familial colorectal cancer and in intestinal failure.

I moved to Bristol in October 2005 when I was appointed as a Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist at North Bristol NHS Trust.

As a Bristol Gastroenterologist I have a full time NHS contract at Frenchay Hospital, North Bristol NHS Trust, where in addition to providing a service
in general and specialist gastroenterology, I practice general (internal) medicine and am actively involved in the provision of acute general medical care. I am the lead gastroenterologist for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), nutrition and endoscopy training in NBT. I am working with our IT department
to develop an IBD database to improve patient care pathways.

My private practice is based at the Spire Hospital Bristol, The Glen, where
there is a well equipped endoscopy unit and consulting rooms with experienced support staff.
