After gaining general medical and gastroenterology experience on Yorkshire rotations, I spent three years as a lecturer in medicine/gastroenterology with Professor David Triger obtaining an MD thesis in hepatology based research. Further gastroenterology/hepatology training at senior registrar level was on the Leeds rotation with Professor Axon and Professor Losowsky/Dr O'Grady with extensive experience being obtained in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy, general gastroenterology and hepatology, including working on the St James Hospital Liver Transplant Unit. I was appointed Consultant Physician/Gastroenterologist at Blackpool in 1996.
