Professional profile

I am a full time consultant Gastroenterologist at the Lister and New QEII Hospitals and am the lead for Upper GI Cancer at East & North Herts Trust. My specialist interests include reflux and heartburn, Barrett’s oesophagus, IBS, constipation, inflammatory bowel disease, diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy, upper GI physiology testing, investigation of abnormal liver function tests and anaemia. I perform diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy, and run the Upper GI physiology testing service for reflux and swallowing problems.

In addition to my clinic interests I am the Trust Lead for investigating Cancer of Unknown Primary source (CUP) at East & Norther Herts and have an active role as a member of the Regional Upper GI Cancer Alliance. I  am also the lead for the Regional Laser service for oesophageal cancer

I obtained my BSc in Neurosciences at Sussex University in 1998 and qualified from Leicester/Warwick Medical School in 2006 with a prize for Clinical medicine. I undertook my speciality training in North West London between 2012 and 2018 working at centres of excellence including St Marks, St Mary’s and Royal London Hospitals.  In 2015 I received the Derek Butler Award and subsequently gained my PhD in 2018 from Queen Mary University of London for research into the biology of Barrett’s oesophagus and its role in cancer development. I have produced a number of publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals and presented presented this work at international meetings: BSG, DDW and UEGW.

I am closely involved in medical education and training, having been the Endoscopy training lead for East & North Herts NHS Trust. I regularly teach on regional JAG accredited endoscopy training courses.
