Prof Yan Yiannakou

Professor of Neurogastroenterology and Director R&D

I am a Consultant Neurogastroenterologist and Director of R&D for County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust. 

I am Director of the Durham Constipation Service which acts as a tertiary referral centre for severe constipation in the North of England. As a neurogastroenterologist, I also see patients with chronic vomiting. The service is based on core values of patient centred-ness, innovation and multi-disciplinary care. Research interests include assessment methods in patients with severe constipation; understanding the patient perspective, and development of novel therapies. 

I have been active in promoting regional research, and have been strongly involved with the Comprehensive Local Research Network in the region. I was member of the founding CLRN Executive and GI Specialty Group lead. I am a member of the BSG Neurogastroenterology section committee and research committee, and am affiliated with Durham University.
