My current role

I work within the Gastroenterology and Transplant departments, looking after patients with a wide range of Gastroenterological and nutrition problems. I perform various endoscopic procedures, including feeding tube insertions. I am the medical lead for the national Intestinal and Multivisceral Transplant service at CUH.

Previous history

I left my hometown of Belfast in Northern Ireland for University in Cambridge in 1998. My first job after graduating was in Addenbrooke’s and I stayed in the East of England for most of my Internal medicine and Gastroenterology training. After some research time and a fellowship in Advanced Nutrition and Intestinal Transplant at CUH I was appointed as a consultant in 2015.
