Dr Woodland was awarded a PhD from Queen Mary University of London for his research into gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. After completion of his PhD he was awarded a prestigious NIHR Clinical Lectureship at the Royal London Hospital, where he continued his research into oesophageal disorders, and completed his training in advanced endoscopy. He was subsequently appointed as a Consultant Gastroenterologist at the same hospital.
In his clinical practice Dr Woodland diagnoses and treats gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and Barrett’s oesophagus, oesophageal motility disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease and gastrointestinal cancers. He is an advanced endoscopist at the Royal London Hospital, undertaking diagnostic and therapeutic gastroscopy, colonoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound.
