Background Information 
Professional profile:

Miss Bryony Lovett is a consultant general surgeon at Spire Hartswood private hospital in Brentwood, Essex, offering private general surgery in our clean and comfortable private hospital. She is one of the few female consultant general surgeons in Essex.

Miss Lovett has a special interest in gastrointestinal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery. Her NHS work is at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Trust in Basildon, Essex. She runs a weekly clinic at Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood, where she offers private consultations for bowel and gastro-intestinal problems. When further investigations or private surgical treatment are needed, these can be arranged promptly at Spire Hartswood Hospital.

Bryony Lovett did her under-graduate training at Cambridge University and at the Royal London Hospital, graduating in 1988. She completed her surgical training in the London and North East Thames region. Miss Lovett developed her interest in coloproctology as a registrar, spending two years researching tumour vascular biology and the potential of tumour vascular targeting in cancer therapy. She completed a masters degree in 1997.

Bryony Lovett also worked at the Royal Free and Middlesex Hospitals where she received training in upper gastrointestinal surgery, liver resection and colorectal surgery. She was appointed Honorary Clinician to St Mark's Hospital in 1998 and, through that appointment, gained experience in the management of the complicated colorectal cases referred to a tertiary centre.

As a lecturer in general surgery, Miss Lovett is involved in the education of medical students and junior surgical staff.

Personal profile:
As a surgical registrar I developed an increasing interest in the issues affecting surgical trainees. As Past President of the Association of Surgeons in Training (ASiT) I have represented trainees views at both regional and national level. ASiT strives to maintain standards of surgical training, a considerable challenge in view of recent changes to the surgical training programme, the implications of the New Deal for junior doctors and the impending European Working Time Directive.

I have always been an active sportswoman. Early success as a track and field athlete has developed into an ethos of continuous sporting activity. I play hockey at a social level for Hampstead and Westminster Hockey Club and am a registered hockey umpire.

My husband and I both sail and play golf when our family commitments allow.
