  • Biography

    Qualified in 1988 at University of Newcastle upon Tyne. Specialist training in Northern Regional rotation.

    Appointed Consultant Gastroenterologist in Sunderland and worked there from 1999-2012. There, I developed an interest and expertise in a wide range of therapeutic endoscopy techniques. I became one of the initial group of accredited bowel cancer screening colonoscopists nationally.

    Appointed to Newcastle Hospitals Trust where I am now lead for endoscopy training. Together with upper GI surgeons I manage Barretts oesophagus service and have started performing radiofrequency ablation for Barretts dysplasia.

    I am the Clinical Director of the North of Tyne Bowel Cancer Screening Centre. In addition to the current FOBt screening (of the bowel) for 60 – 74 year old people, we hope to start flexible sigmoidoscopy screening for 55 year olds in 2014.
