Professional profile

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.
