Dr Chris Meaden
MA (Cantab), BM BCh (Oxon), MD, FRCP
Practices at: BMI The Lancaster Hospital
Dr Meaden is a graduate of both Cambridge and Oxford Universities and completed specialist medical training in gastroenterology and general medicine in Sheffield, Australia and the Manchester region. He completed a research degree in molecular virology and liver disease at The University of Manchester during training. He has been a consultant in the NHS since 2005 and is currently a senior Consultant at a regional referral centre for Gastroenterology.
Dr Meaden believes in allowing patients enough opportunity to express themselves and placing them at the centre of the decision making process after being informed of their options. Patients who are referred to him typically have problems such as abdominal pain/discomfort, indigestion/heartburn/wind/bloating, a change in bowel habit (diarrhoea and constipation), bleeding at defaection, anaemia, gallstone problems, abnormal scan results, abnormal liver tests (LFT’s), or a family history of cancer affecting the digestive system. These complaints usually require a combination of tests including endoscopy, which he performs himself. Dr Meaden has particular expertise in endoscopy and is an endoscopy trainer at a National Endoscopy Training Centre. He is also an Accredited Bowel Cancer Screening Colonoscopist, which requires a higher level of expertise than general consultant endoscopy.
