About me

Ed Seward trained in Edinburgh before moving to Liverpool where he developed an interest in Gastroenterology. He initially obtained a consultant post at Whipps Cross Hospital – now part of Barts Health NHS Trust. Situated in the diverse area of Waltham Forest, this enabled him to develop a broad experience in Gastroenterology. As Endoscopy Lead he developed a sub-specialist interest in therapeutic Endoscopy with particular expertise in colonoscopy and colonic stenting, and ERCP. It also allowed him to pursue a passion for service improvement and redesign, which culminated in his appointment as a National Clinical Advisor for Endoscopy. More recently, he has been responsible for piloting a pathway to shorten diagnostic waits in colorectal cancer which was shortlisted for a prestigious BMJ award, and is currently planned to be extended across London and the South East.

Ed was appointed to UCLH in 2014 to deliver ‘Bowel Scope’ for the North central area of London – the national plan to provide screening for bowel cancer and polyps to all 55 year olds. He is also tasked with delivering an interventional colonoscopy service, and to improve the colonoscopy teaching and research brief at UCLH. His research interests centre on early diagnosis of bowel cancer, using artificial intelligence to assist polyp detection and characterisation. He is a passionate enthusiast of colonoscopy, and delivering patient-centred care.
