Consultant Gastroenterologist

General Medical Council (GMC) registration 4013279

I am a senior medical consultant in Gastroenterology and Liver Medicine, and a specialist in pancreato-biliary endoscopy, at University Hospital Coventry. I have been a NHS consultant physician and gastroenterologist since 2004.

I studied medicine at University of Wales College of Medicine and qualified in 1993. I completed my specialist gastroenterology training in the West Midlands, which included the Liver Unit in Birmingham. I undertook a research fellowship at Peninsula Medical School (South West England), under the supervision of Drs H. Dalton and H. Hussaini at Royal Cornwall Hospital and Dr T. Galloway at University of Plymouth. The research project “Optimising thiopurine use in inflammatory bowel disease” culminated in a thesis, and the award of an M.D. by Peninsula Medical School (Universities of Plymouth & Exeter) in 2005.

I provide a comprehensive, professional, personal & discreet service in hepatology, gastroenterology and endoscopy. I undertake general gastrointestinal endoscopies e.g. a gastroscopy or colonoscopy, as well as advanced endoscopies namely endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography (ERCP), endoscopic stenting, and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS). I also perform liver fibroscan.

I work closely with my local and regional colleagues in hepatology, hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery and interventional radiology to offer a multi-disciplinary service for liver, pancreatic and biliary disease. The advanced gastrointestinal endoscopies or liver fibroscan are not currently available at my base private hospitals, but I can recommend an onward referral.
