I am a Consultant Neurogastroenterologist and Director of
R&D for County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation
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.
'Care received was fantastic and I was very well looked after
and very impressed.'
