I was born in 1943 and educated at the Royal Free Hospital Medical School of the University of London. I gained BSc Anatomy in 1967, MBBS in 1970 and the MRCP in 1973. When a student I was President of the British Medical Students Association and then President of the International Federation of Medical Student Association. I was awarded my FRCP in 1984 and since then have gained an LLB in 1994. My early medical education was in the Liver Unit of the Royal Free hospital with Dame Sheila Sherlock. I have held the posts of Senior Lecturer Gastroenterology, Clinical Tutor and Consultant at the Royal Free Hospital Medical School.
I have also spent many years in both Kuwait and Bahrain as Consultant Physician. In Kuwait I was Senior Medical Officer at Ahmadi and taught undergraduates and postgraduates in the Kuwait Medical School. I was head of the Medical Unit in Awali Hospital Bahrain. Since being in Wimpole Street I have visited and run clinics in Qatar and still travel frequently to the area. I thus have an understanding of Middle Eastern culture and medical problems there, and I speak reasonable medical Arabic.
My main medical interests are Gastroenterology and Endocrinology. I see patients with diverse medical problems but in particular those with abdominal pains, heartburn, irritable bowel, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, diabetes, thyroid disease and the Metabolic Syndrome. I perform Gastroscopies and Colonoscopies at the Princess Grace Hospital Endoscopy Centre each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.
