About me

After completing degree courses in Dundee University, Scotland and the Gregorian University, Rome, Italy I studied medicine in London in 1985, qualifying from University College Middlesex School of Medicine, University of London in 1990. I have been fortunate in having excellent teachers and clinicians during my early formative clinical training in Bournemouth & Poole Hospitals, Conquest Hospital Hastings, The Middlesex Hospital London, and Oldchurch Hospital Romford before gaining my general medical training qualification from the Royal College of Physicians, London in 1994. I entered higher specialist training in Wessex for Gastroenterology, training in Swindon, Southampton and Portsmouth from 1995 - 2000. For 3 years I was privileged to scientific research with clinician scientists in Southampton University studying liver and pancreatic fibrosis in the Molecular Biology Liver Unit, Southampton for a Doctorate in Medicine. I took two years out from my final training to work full time as a gastroenterology registrar working for 5 consultants in St Vincent’s Hospital Medical School, an inner city teaching hospital in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia from 2000 – 2003. Here I was given a rare opportunity to work with outstanding and inspirational clinicians in a tertiary referral viral hepatitis and advanced endoscopy training centre where I learned specialist endoscopy techniques such as EUS & ERCP. After commencing my consultant post in 2003 I led the department of Gastroenterology from 2008 to 2013 and now lead the specialist services in Hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) Medicine whilst providing a regional service for Endoscopic Ultrasound. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, London. Recently I have been part of designing a national training course for trainee endoscopists in EUS as well working closely with the national endoscopy and gastroenterology body for quality in training (JAG).
