Dr Adrian Barnardo

Consultant Gastroenterologist

BMedSci(Hons), BM, BS, MD, FRCP, AGAF

I trained at the University of Nottingham, awarded BMedSci (Hons) in 1992 and BM BS in 1994. I undertook general and specialist training in the London Deanery including the Institute of Liver Studies at King's College Hospital, Guy's and St Thomas' University Hospital and Brighton and Sussex University Hospital. I was awarded a prestigious hepatology training fellowship at the Peninsula Liver Centre in Plymouth in my final year of training where I further developed my hepatological and endoscopic skills.

During my time at King's College Hospital I undertook research into MARS therapy (a liver assist device) and the haematological complications of liver disease. I have presented the results of this and other research nationally and internationally and was awarded my Doctor of Medicine (MD) in 2009 for this work. In 2009, I was appointed Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist at St Mary's Hospital, and moved back to Kent in 2012.

Since being appointed as a Consultant I have been a Royal College Tutor and trainer on national JAG Endoscopy Courses at Brighton University. In 2012 I became a nationally recognised bowel cancer screening endoscopist. In 2015 I was awarded my Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians (FRCP) and this was followed recently by the prestigious award Fellow of the American Gastroenterology Association (AGAF) in 2017 in acknowledgement of my ongoing work in Gastroenterology.

I was lead consultant on the development of local liver services at Medway Maritime Hospital NHS Trust for four years before transferring to Maidstone & Tunbridge NHS Trust at the end of 2016.
