    I trained in London and was a registrar and research fellow at the Royal Free Hospital.  I completed my postgraduate training in the Northern Region and was appointed as a consultant physician and gastroenterologist in Newcastle in March 1998. 

    At the Freeman Hospital we have developed the specialist care of patients with severe malnutrition, especially those requiring parenteral nutrition (having nutrition via an infusion into a vein).
