Professional profile

I am a consultant gastroenterologist at Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood, treating patients with gastrointestinal problems, liver disease, inflammatory bowel disease and patients with complex nutrition requirements. I use endoscopic procedures to treat patients with acute gastro-intestinal bleeding.

I trained in gastroenterology and liver diseases at King’s College Hospital, London, as part of the South East Thames rotation. I have experience in managing a wide range of complex, acute and chronic conditions.

I am interested in innovation and have developed a new design of naso-gastric tube. This design was given a highly commended prize in the competition in East of England region. I believe proper design is essential to all the services we develop and a good design is capable of solving most problems in life.

Patient safety is central to my clinical practice, together with a gentle, kind, considerate and ‘listening’ approach to patient care. I take time to discuss and involve patients in the decision process for managing their condition.
