About me

Dr Mehta is a Consultant Gastroenterologist at University College London Hospitals (UCLH) NHS Trust and Honorary Associate Professor at University College London. He has a special interest in Clinical Nutrition and Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and works within the highly-specialised Intestinal Failure Unit at UCLH. He cares for patients with complex nutritional and feeding problems although his clinical practice encompasses all aspects of gastroenterology including endoscopy, dyspepsia, reflux and functional gut disorders such as IBS.

He has extensive clinical experience in these fields, has given several international presentations on his research work and continues to be involved with multi-national clinical trials to help advance the management of his patients.

Dr Mehta’s longstanding passion has been the delivery of individualised and patient-centred care. He has led on a range of far-reaching service development projects in four different London hospitals, all of which have been focussed on improving patients’ experiences when they are taken ill.

He explains, ‘My clinical training allows me to provide outstanding care to my patients and to consistently deliver excellent clinical outcomes across the entire scope of my practice. This is based on an evidence-based approach to my work, constantly evaluating my performance and also contributing to what is known in my field through research. However, more than that, I believe the role of a doctor is to heal and not simply to treat. I am therefore passionate about a delivering unique service; one in which my patients are actively involved in decisions regarding their health, as well as in which care is matched to the holistic needs of each individual patient’.
