My speciality is Gastroenterology and I see conditions relating to both the upper and lower the gastrointestinal tract. Commonly the symptoms I see include indigestion, heartburn, iron deficiency anaemia, weight loss, abdominal pain, diarrhoea and rectal bleeding. My expertise and training is in endoscopy including gastroscopy, endoscopic ultrasound and colonoscopy and I am the clinical lead consultant for endoscopy in Southampton.
I graduated from Bristol University, served in the Royal Army Medical Corps from 1990-97, and then completed my training within Wessex before being appointed to a substantive consultant post in Southampton in 2004. I consult both in the NHS and privately and see referrals from both GPs and consultant colleagues.
