Remember patients should be referred by their General Practitioners. If you would like to be seen please ask your GP to provide a referral letter.

Private  Practice - October 2020

Unfortunately due to the evolving Covid Pandemic and resulting NHS pressures I am once again no longer in a position to be currently accepting new private patient referrals.  

To make an appointment with a gastroenterologist please contact KIMS outpatient bookings who will arrange it for you. 

I can thoroughly recommend Dr Guy Sisson at KIMS who is a very experienced colleague.


KIMS Hospital is set in the beautiful Kent countryside yet within easy reach of the
