Dr Assad Butt is a leading U.K. specialist in Paediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition based in the South East with over 17 years’ experience as a consultant. He successfully pioneered the development of a new specialist service in Brighton and lead its subsequent transformation to a regional tertiary centre. His practice now attracts patients from throughout the region, seeking the best quality evidence-based opinions and treatments.
Dr Butt qualified from Charing Cross & Westminster Medical School (University of London) in 1987, before completing his early training in various London teaching hospitals. Developing an interest in gastroenterology, he undertook specialist training at a number of renowned medical centres of excellence both in the UK (Great Ormond Street and Royal Free Hospitals, London) and in Canada (Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto). This included a clinical research fellowship in paediatric gastroenterology at the Royal Free Hospital and a paediatric gastroenterology and nutrition postgraduate fellowship training programme at the University of Toronto, before being appointed to his current post in 2002
Dr Butt is a good listener and frank speaker, knowing the importance of engaging fully with the children, young people and families he sees, in a patient-centred practice. He works closely with like-minded multidisciplinary colleagues with emphasis on teamwork and use of best practice to deliver the best possible outcomes for patients.
