I am a Consultant Gastroenterologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. I was previously Consultant Gastroenterologist at St Mark's Hospital, Harrow for 10 years until relocating to Edinburgh. I qualified MB ChB from Edinburgh University in 1992 with post graduate training in Aberdeen, Birmingham, Manchester and London.

I achieved MRCP in 1996, was awarded an MD in 2004 for studies of the neurophysiologic control of swallowing and became FRCP in 2009. I undertook the 1st advanced endoscopy fellowship at The Wolfson Unit for Endoscopy at St Mark's Hospital in 2003. While at St Mark's, I was a nationally accredited NHS bowel cancer screening specialist in colonoscopy. I work in Spire Shawfair Park's endoscopy suite which holds JAG accreditation.
