Neil is a Consultant Colorectal Surgeon.  He qualified as a doctor from King’s college London in 1998 and was appointed a Consultant Surgeon in 2014.

He manages the surgical diagnosis and surgical problems associated with inflammatory bowel disease and works closely with the gastroenterologists to provide a joined up approach.

Neil is a JAG accredited endoscopist and is able to perform both upper and lower GI endoscopy (OGD and colonoscopy).

Neil’s general surgical practice includes the management of hernias and gallstones (laparoscopic cholecystectomy)

He is the surgical lead for safety at Medway Maritime Trust, where he  strives hard to improve the provision of surgical services to the local population.
