About me

I qualified from Bristol University in 1995 and worked as a junior doctor in hospitals throughout the South West of England. I started my gastroenterology speciality training programme in the Oxford training region in 2000, and this was where I developed my specialist interest in inflammatory bowel disease and visceral (gut) pain. I spent 5 years working in the highly regarded inflammatory bowel disease unit at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford and went on to research how the brain processes pain generated from the gut in 2002 at the Functional MRI Centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital. I was awarded a PhD from Oxford University for my research work in 2006.

Having completed my Gastroenterology Specialist Training I joined the team at the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in 2007 as Consultant Gastroenterologist. Since then I have developed an area of specialist expertise in endoscopy and endoscopy training. I am Co-Director of the Gloucestershire Endoscopy Training Centre (http://www.jets.nhs.uk/Centre/Default.aspx?SiteId=4) which has a prestigious national and international reputation for the excellent quality of training provided. We provide courses for both endoscopy trainees and established endoscopists who want to improve their diagnostic, therapeutic and endoscopy teaching skills. I was appointed as one of the county’s four bowel cancer screening colonoscopists in 2012.

In 2008 I was also appointed as the National Lead for the Development of the JETS e-portfolio which is a national web-based portfolio for endoscopy trainees. Since appointment I have overseen the successful development and national roll out of the system. All endoscopy trainees in the UK now used the system to demonstrate their endoscopic experience and competence.
