Dr Richard Jones
MBChB, PhD, FRCP
I graduated in from medical school in 1997, and completed both my general medical training and specialist training in Gastroenterology and General Medicine around Yorkshire. I subsequently completed a PhD at Manchester University focusing on nutrition and appetite control and have published and presented my research at both National and International conferences.
In addition to my private practice, I have been a Consultant Gastroenterologist at the University Hospital of South Manchester (Wythenshawe Hospital) since 2010, where I am the current Clinical Director for the Department of Gastroenterology. I have broad and extensive experience in all aspects of gastroenterology with a particular interest in clinical nutrition, inflammatory bowel disease and endoscopy. I am also involved in the training of both medical students and junior doctors and am an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester.
I am passionate about my work and always aim to provide a safe, efficient and thorough care to all my patients.
Spire Manchester Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
