    I qualified in Medicine at the University of Nottingham Medical School.  I undertook postgraduate training as a junior doctor as part of the Manchester medical rotation.  I worked as a Specialist Registrar on the Northern Deanery (Newcastle) Gastroenterology rotation and am now dual certified in Gastroenterology and General Internal Medicine.  I am a certified endoscopist with full JAG accreditation.

    I am a Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist based primarily at the Royal Victoria Infirmary.  I am the Clinical Lead for the Assessment Suite, which is a new state of the art facility, receiving and treating acutely unwell patients from the Emergency Department and from General Practice.  I also lead the RVI Nutrition Team and am part of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Team within our tertiary centre.  I am an investigator in several multi-centre trials aimed at providing better and more effective treatments for patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
