About me

Dr McLaughlin trained in Medicine at Guy’s, King’s and St. Thomas’ Medical Schools, qualifying in 2000. During his postgraduate training he undertook two and half years of clinical research at St. Mark’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals London. His research investigated the hypothesis that a bacterial dysbiosis is fundamental to the inflammatory process which occurs in up to half of patients with ulcerative colitis who undergo restorative proctocolectomy. Further work included developing new treatment strategies for pre-pouch ileitis and pouchitis in patients with ulcerative colitis. He was awarded an MD from Imperial College London in 2010.

Dr McLaughlin has undertaken additional specialist training in single-balloon and device assisted enteroscopy and also video-capsule endoscopy at St. Thomas’ Hospital London. He remains actively involved in research and is clinical lead for Gastroenterology research in Bournemouth. Dr McLaughlin has published three book chapters on inflammatory bowel disease and has written numerous papers, he is an author of the current British Society of Gastroenterology Coeliac Disease guidelines. His practice includes all aspects of luminal gastroenterology with a particular interest in inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and patients who have undergone ileal-anal pouch surgery) irritable bowel syndrome and coeliac disease.
