Personal profile

I read medicine at Trinity College, Cambridge, and carried out my clinical training at the London Hospital Medical College (now the Royal London and Barts). 

After several years as a junior doctor, I joined the Institute of Liver Studies at King's College Hospital for a period of specialist training and research. Here I undertook an MD thesis on the subject of liver immunology and alcoholic liver disease. Throughout my five years in the Liver Unit I was part of a team led by Professor Roger Williams, looking after liver transplant cases, patients with liver failure and cases of viral hepatitis, among others.

After this I worked as a Senior Registrar in Glasgow at Stobhill Hospital, Gartnavel Hospital and the Western Infirmary before being appointed a Consultant physician at Maidstone Hospital.

While at Maidstone my energies have been directed at providing a specialised endoscopic service (including ERCP), setting up a system in West Kent for looking after those with hepatitis B and C and maintaining research and educational links with King's College Hospital.
