- Inflammatory bowel disease
I was appointed as a Consultant Gastroenterologist and General Physician at Central Middlesex Hospital in 1999. In my NHS practice I am a senior consultant in a busy gastroenterology department, managing patients with a wide spectrum of gastrointestinal, liver, pancreatic and biliary disorders. I am a lead physician for inflammatory bowel disease at Central Middlesex Hospital, where there is a dedicated clinic for patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
I am a trainer of foundation and specialist postgraduate doctors of all levels and I teach undergraduate medical students from Imperial College, London.
I have over 20 years of specialist experience. I trained at St Vincent’s University Hospital in Dublin and completed my specialist training at The Middlesex and Central Middlesex Hospitals in London. I have presented my research at numerous national and international scientific meetings.
I am committed to providing the highest standards of patient care and communication. I have excellent results from patient satisfaction surveys and countless complimentary letters from patients over many years. I perform endoscopic procedures to a very high standard and audit my clinical practice regularly.
As a female gastroenterologist at the Clementine Churchill Hospital I am pleased to provide a service for women with gastrointestinal problems.

My research interest was in the field of cholestatic liver disease. This was the subject of many publications and my M.D. thesis. I have also published research on portal haemodynamics in patients with chronic liver disease, the use of metal stents in the management of benign and malignant biliary obstruction and the identification of TPMT polymorphisms in the prediction of myelosuppression in patients taking azathioprine.
