Professional profile

I completed Specialist Registrar training in the North West of England. Following a two year period of research into gastric cancer, I was awarded the Doctorate of Medicine (MD) degree (University of Liverpool). I subsequently trained in advanced endoscopic techniques (colonoscopy, ERCP, endoscopic ultrasound) as an advanced endoscopy fellow in the professorial unit at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. I was appointed as a Consultant Gastroenterologist at Blackpool Teaching Hospital in 2012 and am currently the lead clinician for Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

In addition to general gastroenterology, my specialist interests include:

- endoscopy (all aspects of diagnostic, therapeutic such as polyp removal, and cancer surveillance of the oesophagus, stomach and colon)

- dyspepsia management (heartburn, indigestion)

- irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease

- diseases of the liver and pancreas

I am a certified endoscopy trainer and teach at the Mersey School of Endoscopy (National Endoscopy Training Centre) and I actively pursue clinical research.
