    Background Information 
    Professional profile:
    I am a physician at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital and have been working at Spire Norwich Hospital since my appointment in Norwich in 1996. I am interested in all aspects of gastroenterology and have a large practice in inflammatory bowel disease. I have established the bowel cancer screening programme in Norwich and am responsible for rolling the programme out across the East of England.

    I am responsible for delivery of the endoscopy programmes in Norwich and monitoring of quality and patient safety. I also hold responsibility for running the East Anglian endoscopy training courses for post-graduate doctors and am a national assessor for quality standards in endoscopy units.
    Personal profile:
    I have a young family who love sporting activities and am a regular visitor of Carrow Road and Wymondham Rugby Club. I enjoy country sporting pursuits and my wife and I run a small holding in South Norfolk.
