About me

Dr Kitchen studied Medicine at Oxford University, during which time he completed an MA in Physiological Sciences in 1998. He completed his clinical training at St Georges Hospital London and qualified in 1991. He undertook Gastroenterology training at St Mark’s Hospital Middlesex, Northwick Park Hospital, The Hammersmith Hospital, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, and St Mary’s Hospital London.

He undertook research in Imperial College School of Medicine at the Hammersmith Campus, Cancer Research UK and St Mark's Hospital between October 1997 and May 2001. He has presented the results of this and other research nationally and internationally and was awarded his PhD in 2003 from the University of London.

He has a wide experience in all aspects of gastroenterology including inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, gastro-oesophageal reflux disease/dyspepsia and coeliac disease.
He has a special interest in endoscopy. He has developed his colonoscopy practice to a high standard and thus was accredited as a bowel cancer screener at Medway Hospital in 2012.

Dr Kitchen has a wide experience of general (internal) medicine. He has received a number of awards for clinical excellence. He was appointed Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist in 2003 at Medway Maritime Hospital and has taken a leading role in inflammatory bowel disease, nutrition, endoscopy and bowel cancer screening.
