About me

Dr Postgate graduated from Guy’s and St. Thomas Hospital in London in 1999 with First Class Honours. During his training he was awarded the Baldwin Prize for Clinical Medicine, the Bristowe Medal and Beaney Prize for Pathology, The War Memorial Clinical Exhibition, and The Wolfson Foundation scholarship for his BSc studies.

Core medical training was at Charing Cross and West Middlesex Hospitals followed by specialist training in gastroenterology and general medicine within the North West London region between 2003 and 2010. He spent four years at the St. Mark’s Hospital, including three within The Wolfson Unit for Endoscopy for his post-graduate research for which he was awarded a Doctorate of Medicine degree from Imperial College London in 2010. He undertook a 6 month ERCP Fellowship at Hammersmith Hospital prior to his appointment as a full time NHS Consultant at Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in London in 2010.

He is the Endoscopy Lead for the Trust and he takes on the majority of the more complex and interventional endoscopy including ERCP. He offers outpatient and endoscopy services at both Hillingdon and Mount Vernon Hospitals in addition to seeing patients with a full range of gastroenterology, general hepatology and pancreatobiliary problems in his NHS practice. He covers emergency cases at Harefield Hospital. He has published on interventional endoscopy and capsule endoscopy and he has peer-reviewed articles for international journals.

He lives in North London with his wife, a GP, and three boys.
