Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr John Grabham is a consultant general surgeon at Spire Gatwick Park private hospital in Horley, Surrey, offering private appointments to patients in Surrey, Sussex, and South London. 

Mr Grabham is the Senior Colorectal Surgeon at Surrey and Sussex NHS Trust. He was appointed as Consultant Surgeon in 2001. He trained at specialist units in the Trent, Glasgow and Wessex region, ultimately as Senior Registrar to Professor Bill Heald, the World authority on rectal cancer surgery. He has developed a clinical practice in Surrey which was reviewed by the National Lead for Colorectal Cancer and described as equal to the best in the country.

Mr Grabham led the development of the Department for Digestive Diseases, establishing a multi-disciplinary team of physicians and surgeons and building a new wing of the hospital dedicated to the management of gastrointestinal diseases. He now concentrates on clinical work which is principally focussed upon the investigation and management of patients with bowel diseases. He is qualified as a British Society of Gastroenterology “gold standard” colonoscopist and also has a busy practice in the surgical management of hernias.

Personal profile:

I am married to Pippa and have twin children, Tom and Fiona, who were born in 2007. We have a small farm in West Sussex and breed and train horses for Dressage. If I have any spare free time, I enjoy classic cars, skiing and sailing.
