About me

Dr Chris Henry Fraser MB ChB MD FRCP is a consultant gastroenterologist and qualified from Edinburgh University in 1992 with training in Aberdeen, Birmingham, Manchester and London. He achieved MRCP in 1996 and was awarded an MD in 2004 for studies of the neurophysiologic control of swallowing. He became FRCP in 2009. He undertook the 1st advanced endoscopy fellowship at The Wolfson Unit for Endoscopy at St Mark's Hospital in 2003 prior to his consultant appointment there in 2004. After 10 years at St Mark's, he is now consultant gastroenterologist at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. He sees private patients in Edinburgh.

He was the clinical lead of the St Mark's small bowel and obscure GI bleeding service and a faculty member of the European Capsule Endoscopy Training Course and UK Small Bowel Endoscopy Users’ Group.
