Specialises in

I have 28 years of experience at consultant level specialising in all aspects of gastroenterology but specifically interested in bowel disease. As such I am proficient in both diagnostic and therapeutic upper (Gastroscopy) and lower (Colonoscopy) gastrointestinal endoscopy.

I have performed well over 10,000 Upper GI endoscopy and 300 - 400 colonoscopy procedures a year.

In the NHS, I run dedicated clinics for inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis) but also see patients with other GI conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and coeliac disease.

I joined the Hull University Teaching Hospital NHS Trust in 1995. The experience and skills I had accumulated during this period has been of great help to my patients and to my trainees, many of whom are now consultants in their own rights. I am particularly interested in inflammatory bowel disease and nutrition and run an inflammatory bowel disease clinic at NHS hospital.

I am a keen cyclist and it fills me with joy to be on the bike whether its is a motor bike or a push bike. I have cycled most of the local cycling routes in Yorkshire. On the motor cycle I have been all over the UK and some parts of eastern Europe and it is my ambition to be able to do an African tour on a motor bike.
