Professional profile:

I qualified from St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College London in 1987. A medical doctor, specialising in Immunology / Allergy, I also have a PhD (Autoimmunity, The Gut, and Coeliac Disease). I am a Fellow of The Royal College of Physicians (London) and The Royal College of Pathologists. Revalidated in 2013. My general medicine training was mainly at The Royal postgraduate Medical School (Hammersmith), and senior registrar training in Immunology / allergy at Cambridge (Addenbroke’s). Appointed Consultant (Southmead Hospital Bristol) in 1994.

Personal profile:

With our 4 children (two at University) we enjoy sports, travel / foreign holidays. We try to get to Glastonbury each summer. My personal hobbies include trying to learn Piano & Spanish, and (now that my knee is too damaged for competitive soccer) walking, cycling and sailing.
