About me

I am a Consultant Gastroenterologist at the Manchester Royal Infirmary, which is a large university teaching hospital. I am the inflammatory bowel disease lead for the hospital, and specialize in endoscopy procedures. I also have a vast array of experience in managing patients with a variety of disorders of the gastrointestinal tract.

Having gained a BSc in Medical Science at the University of St Andrews, I qualified in Medicine from the University of Manchester in 1997. I have worked in the NHS ever since and undertook my specialist training in gastroenterology within the North West region. During this I was awarded an MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship and completed my PhD, studying how mechanisms of the immune system can lead to gut inflammation. I was appointed to my current role in 2012.

A key area of my interest and expertise is the performing of endoscopic procedures (gastroscopies, colonoscopies, and sigmoidoscopies). I am a nationally accredited bowel cancer screening colonoscopist, which requires and demonstrates the highest standard of colonoscopy skills, quality, and safety. I also have a major interest in endoscopy training, and am a member of faculty at the Mersey School of Endoscopy where I teach on colonoscopy and basic endoscopy training courses.

In addition, I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester. I co-supervise post-graduate students, I have on-going basic science research collaborations, and I am the principal investigator on a variety of clinical drug trials to find new and better treatments for patients who suffer with inflammatory bowel disease. I have published original research widely, and continues to do so.
