About me

I was appointed as a Consultant Gastroenterologist and Physician in 2013 at Musgrove Park Hospital, and have a full time NHS contract.

Prior to this I completed specialist gastroenterology training in the Wessex region, during which I took time out of programme to complete a doctoral thesis in cellular biochemistry and inflammatory bowel disease; my PhD was awarded in 2014 for this work.

Since taking up my consultant post, my focus has been on delivering safe and high quality endoscopy, developing advanced endoscopic skills and bringing new innovations into my endoscopic practice. I am an accredited bowel cancer screening colonoscopist, a certification which is a marker of a high quality.

Capsule Colonoscopy has recently been introduced as an alternative to colonoscopy or CT colon. I have passed an accredited training programme to specialise in this technique.

My management roles include Director of the Somerset bowel cancer screening programme, clinical lead for the capsule endoscopy service and clinical nutrition lead (shared role).

I am also an active member of the clinical ethics team for Somerset NHS Foundation Trust and have developed a specialist interest in complex clinical nutrition disorders and clinically assisted nutrition.
