Personal profile

Dr Holt is a Consultant Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist working at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where he is a Deputy Medical Director for Specialty Medicine and Surgery. Andrew has a particular clinical interest in liver and bowel diseases and runs a regular private endoscopy list at Edgbaston hospital & clinics at the Priory Hospital. He holds NHS clinics at hospitals in Birmingham, Hereford, Gloucester, S.Wales and the Isle of Man and is a partner in the Birmingham Liver Clinic.

Andrew offers a discreet and professional service. His clinic offers FibroScan™ examination of the liver – a non-invasive means of measuring liver damage without recourse to biopsy. NICE recommend that heavy drinkers should have a regular FibroScan™ to assess for liver damage (NG50) as this doesn’t always show up on blood tests.

Dr Holt also uses blood markers (the enhanced liver fibrosis test - ELF) to assess the risk of cirrhosis in fatty liver disease.  Andrew’s clinic also offers upper GI endoscopy and ERCP.

Dr Holt graduated with an Honours degree in Medicine in 1996 and is accredited with the GMC as a Consultant in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. He started working at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in 2002 and now practices as a Consultant Physician. The Birmingham Liver Unit, which is world-famous and one of the largest liver clinics in Europe, is highly regarded by patients and specialists alike. Andrew is very happy to see self-funding patients as well as insured clients.

Clinics: Tuesday afternoon and evening and Thursday evening (by appointment only)
