Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist

I am a Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist based at Derriford Hospital, Plymouth. I have a busy NHS practice based at Derriford Hospital providing inpatient and outpatient gastroenterology services. I have a major interest in the management of Inflammatory bowel and functional bowel disease. I also have an interest in therapeutic endoscopy. I am also a General Physician and look after patients with a broad range of medical problems. 

My private practice is based at the Nuffield Hospital, Plymouth. My special interests are the symptoms and treatment of dyspepsia, gastro-oesophageal reflux, inflammatory bowel diseases and irritable bowel syndrome. I am an experienced endoscopist performing many diagnostic and therapeutic procedures each year.

I am a screening colonoscopist for the Bowel Cancer screening programme. Key performance indicators for my clinical endoscopic practice including adenoma detection rate, caecal intubation rate and any complications are nationally recorded & scrutinised. 

The purpose of this site is to inform it's visitors about my clinical practice and my interests.
