I completed my general medical and gastroenterological training on the prestigious North West Thames rotation. I was trained in colonoscopy at the Wolfson unit for endoscopy, St. Mark's hospital.

St. Mark's hospital is the UK's only specialist hospital for colorectal disease and the Wolfson unit is a national colonoscopy training centre and an accredited bowel cancer screening centre. I am now teaching on the South West colonoscopy training courses.

My research 'Hyperplastic polyposis, serrated polyps and the serrated colorectal cancer pathway' was supervised by Professor Wendy Atkin and resulted in an MD from the University of London. During my research years, I developed an interest in familial colorectal cancer.

I spent four years working in the intestinal failure unit at St. Mark's hospital, one of only two units in the UK. I have now set up two multidisciplinary nutrition teams and I'm currently the lead gastroenterologist for nutrition in North Bristol NHS Trust (NBT).

I am the lead gastroenterologist for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in NBT.

I'm developing an IBD database to improve patient care pathways and believe in assisted patient self-management and patient education.

Doctor in Gastroenterology, Southmead Hospital

I moved to Bristol in October 2005. My partner and family still live in London, so many weekends are spent in traffic on the M4. I have two mischievous cats that keep me company during the week.

Weekends at home are either spent exploring Bristol or in DIY stores as I am slowly restoring my Edwardian house to its former glory. My interests include interior and exterior design, gardening, popular music, fitness and eating out. My interest in fitness stems from my love of eating out, especially as I find the dessert menu hard to resist!
