Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Jeremy Livingstone trained at King’s College and the Westminster Hospitals under Professors Harold Ellis and Christopher Wastell. He was appointed Consultant Surgeon to Mount Vernon Hospital and Watford General Hospital in 1996 and shortly afterwards commenced practice at Spire Bushey Hospital. His main career interest has been in the field of bowel, stomach and oesophageal cancer and he was one of the early pioneers of the National Cancer Networks. He was instrumental in the development of the Regional Upper GI Cancer Centre based in Watford and is the Lead Clinician for this service. Mr Livingstone was involved in the very early development of minimally invasive (laparoscopic) techniques and has a very wide experience of its application, particularly in the field of gall bladder and hernia surgery. He estimates he has performed in excess of 3,000 gall bladder procedures. Mr Livingstone is currently the Clinical Director of Surgery at Watford and has held a number of positions of responsibility in the past, including Chairman of the Medical Committee at Spire Bushey.

Mr Livingstone’s practice at Spire Bushey Hospital mirrors his NHS practice, focusing on gastrointestinal and abdominal problems. A particular emphasis of his private practice has been on hernia surgery, promoting the use of minimally invasive techniques for all forms of abdominal hernia. Most recently, he has been responsible for the development of a stand-alone Hernia Clinic within Spire Bushey Hospital. Mr Livingstone is happy to see all forms of gastrointestinal and hernia problems, no matter how complex. 

As one of the most longstanding general surgeons in the area, Mr Livingstone prides himself on his depth of experience and pragmatic approach to complex problems. Over the years, he has built an excellent rapport with the local general practitioners and hopes always to provide a high quality but personal service to each of his patients.

Personal profile:

Mr Livingstone has lived in the local area for the last 20 years. He is known for his love of exotic cars, designer ties and electronic gadgets. He is also known for his unstinting loyalty to his local football club and was, for some years, the general surgeon to Watford Football Club.
