    I graduated from Southampton in 1987 and trained in Gastroenterology in the North East and been a Consultant at the Freeman since 1998.  My clinical focus is on Pancreatic and Biliary diseases. 

    I have developed the regional  pancreaticobiliary endoscopy service at the Freeman into one of the busiest in the country (the unit performs in excess of 1300 EUS & ERCP annually) providing the full range of advanced pancreacticobiliary endoscopy.  I co-authored the BSG EUS service provision and training framework document (2011).
