Professional profile

I went to St. George’s Medical School in South West London, where I also completed a BSc to compliment the MB BS. I went on to train in the South East Thames region, through Guy’s, St. Thomas’s and King’s. I completed my MD research fellowship at St. Mark’s in 2009 investigating the bacterial pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease and studying the use of probiotics as a novel form of therapy. I now work at the Luton & Dunstable University Hospital as a Consultant Gastroenterologists and Clinical Lead for the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Service. I also run the Small Bowel Capsule Service and the Oesophageal Laboratory. I am dual qualified as a Gastroenterologists and General Medical Physician. I was invited to become a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 2013. In the last 10 years I have been the Clinical Lead for Gastroenterology at both the Luton & Dunstable University Hospital and also at the Spire Harpenden Hospital. I maintain an active role in research.

Additional information

I am a true luminologist, dealing with everything from the mouth to anus. There isn’t a part of the bowel I can’t access, if needed. I am interested in any condition that affects the enteric absorption and transport system, which means I tend to deal with everything from oesophageal spasm, dysmotility, reflux, indigestion, ulcers, food allergies, coeliac disease, food intolerances, IBS, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), polyps and cancer. More recently my research has focussed on non-invasive stool markers of inflammation, coeliac disease, patient self management websites and pan-enteric capsule in the assessment of new treatments for IBD. I am presently the National Lead for the IBD Registry and Patient Management System, Early Adopters Role Out Programme. I have also been involved with the development of web-based management systems eg. the Coeliac and IBD-SSHAMP (Supported, Self Help And Management Programme).
