About me

I graduated in 1989 from the University of Manchester and became a consultant in Lancashire in 2000 (Blackburn) and then Wigan in 2009.

I am an approachable, patient-centred, and very experienced doctor and always make sure that I explore your issues carefully and thoroughly. I have access to all the investigations needed to do this.

My training included all aspects of Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. This included emergency, intensive and coronary care, lung disease and diabetes.

My specialised gastroenterology training has included work in a number of North West Hospitals including Hope Hospital and Manchester Royal Infirmary.

My post-graduate research was carried out at Manchester University (1997-99) and examined the management of dyspepsia and upper gastrointestinal tract symptoms. I have also published a number of papers covering a wide variety of gastroenterology related subjects throughout his training and have continued to do so as a consultant. My latest work is involved with optimising the care of patients with jaundice due to cancer.
