      Background Information 
      Professional profile:
      My clinical practice at the Spire Leeds Hospital is mainly gastroenterological, and I undertake both upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopy.
      I am particularly interested in the investigation and management of dyspepsia, functional abdominal symptoms/irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, non-inflammatory small bowel and colonic disease (polyps, cancer), diarrhoeal disorders, and chronic constipation.
      I received specialist training while working on a number of major gastroenterology units in Manchester (1974-1978), Newcastle upon Tyne (1978-1982), and Yale University (1980-19830).
      I have held consultant posts since 1983 (MRC Senior Clinical Fellow, Newcastle and Manchester 1983-1989); Senior Lecturer in Medicine 1989-1998), moving to Leeds in 1998.
      Allied to my NHS and private practice, I supervise a strong programme of laboratory research into the mechanisms and pharmacological control of diarrhoeal disorders, in the Molecular Medicine Unit, St James's University Hospital, Leeds.
      It is my policy that all patients, whether NHS or private, must be referred by their general practitioner or another specialist.
      Personal profile:
      My free time is devoted to family, friends and food. Well developed interests in art, antiques and music will re-assert themselves in retirement.
