About me

I am an Endoscopy Trainer at the Mersey School of Endoscopy (one of three National training centres). I am an advanced therapeutic endoscopist working as part of the regional Hepatobiliary team receiving Regional Referrals from across the North West. I practice in a very patient centred way. Being a patient myself taught me a big lesson in the importance of being kind and compassionate.

I work privately from BMI The Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle, the Alex has level 3 ITU and fantastic facilities for my patients.
