I have an interest in Luminal Gastroenterology and have been
trained in Inflammatory bowel disease and advanced therapeutic
endoscopy and colonoscopy at Oxford and London. I have also held
British Society of Gastroenterology International Fellowships at
the Medical University of South Carolina USA and Tokyo Japan for
early GI cancer diagnosis and endoscopic treatment.
I currently conduct the Inflammatory bowel disease clinic at
Bishop Auckland and have a research interest in new technologies
for Endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of early cancers in
Barrett's Oesophagus. My current research interests include
Barrett's Oesophagus Coeliac Disease and Inflammatory bowel disease
and I currently run over 6 clinical studies in various aspects of
Gastrointestinal Research with regional and national collaborators
in the UK.
I have research publications in Helicobacter pylori IBD and
Endoscopy and I have been a recipient of a Commonwealth Fellowship
to the University of Oxford for Gastroenterology training and the
British Society of Gastroenterology fellowship for training in
advanced endoscopy. I was elected to the FRCP of the Royal College
of Physicians of Edinburgh in 2005. I have a Certificate in Medical
Education from the University of Newcastle and have an interest in
the education of Junior Doctors.
