I am a HCPC registered Dietitian with over 13 years experience working in the National Health Service (NHS) across a wide variety of clinical areas in leading teaching hospitals in Liverpool and London.
I have worked as a Highly Specialist Dietitian in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) since 2010 with responsibility for the dietary management of the inpatient and outpatient dietetic service for adolescents and adults with IBD in a large London Teaching Hospital. I also conduct regular outpatient clinics for patients with Coeliac Disease.
I completed specialist training at King’s College on delivering the low FODMAP diet which is an evidence based treatment for functional gut disorders. I have over 8 years experience delivering the low FODMAP diet in functional GI disorders for patients both in the NHS and private practice setting. I am currently on a clinical secondment setting up a new service for patients with IBS involving delivery of the low FODMAP diet.
I am an Honorary Lecturer at London Metropolitan University teaching dietetic students on the dietary management of IBD and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I have previously lectured on the dietary management of IBD for the UCL MSc in Clinical and Public Health Nutrition course.
I am the BDA representative for IBD UK and contributed to the updated IBD standards published in Frontline Gastroenterology. I have experience contributing to book chapters and dietetic magazines. I have led on two papers published in peer reviewed journals.
