Dr Andy Li completed undergraduate medical training at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School (University of London) in 1993. After general medical training he underwent specialist training in Gastroenterology on the South East Thames Regional Rotation. This included postings in prestigious London teaching hospitals including Guys, St Thomas' and Kings College.
Several additional years were spent at St Thomas' Hospital and King's College London where he pursued research and published scientific articles on aspects of intestinal iron absorption. This required him to learn the fundamentals of using an electron microscope as well as keep up with his clinical commitments including the supervision of clinical drug trials on patients with Crohns Disease. He still is involved in drug trials related to inflammatory bowel disease.
Dr Li was appointed to his current NHS consultant post at Worthing Hospital in 2004 and joined BMI Goring Hall Hospital in January 2006. He sits on the specialist training committee for Gastroenterology for Kent, Surrey and Sussex Deanery. He is the local clinical lead for inflammatory bowel disease services.
He is fully accredited trainer in diagnostic and therapeutic gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures including Gastroscopy, sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy.
Dr Li sees patients with gastrointestinal and liver disorders. He believes a multi-disciplinary approach is important for the majority of patients and this might include involvement of other professionals to whom he might refer.
