Biographical Info

I am now retired; until March 2022, I was Consultant Gastroenterologist at University Hospitals of Leicester and Honorary Professor, Department of Genetics and Genome Biology, College of Life Sciences, University of Leicester. Previously President of the Midlands Gastroenterological Society and of AGIP, BSG Secretary and Chair, BSG Oesophageal Section.   Undergraduate training: Cambridge University and Middlesex Hospital, London. Interests in oesophageal motility disorders, gastro-oesophageal reflux and non-cardiac chest pain developed in Edinburgh and at St George's Hospital, London resulting in a research MD and published papers. Subsequent interest in Barrett’s resulted in publications in surveillance (including advanced imaging), endotherapy and chemoprophylaxis of Barrett’s (AspECT), together with guidelines (BSG, BOBCAT and BADCAT). I was co-author on recent BSG guidelines for oesophageal stricture management (2018) and oesophageal high resolution manometry/pH/Impedence monitoring (2019). I was an accredited BCSP colonoscopist, and was until November 2021 East Midlands CRN Division 6 Clinical Lead.
