My base hospital is the NHS Hospital at Maidstone which is part of the Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust:

Department of Gastroenterology, Maidstone Hospital, Hermitage Lane, Maidstone, Kent, ME16 9QQ, UK, tel 01622 224235, fax 01622 224667.

My secretary is Jakki and can be contacted on the above number, but to have an NHS appointment you have to have a referral from your GP. The phone is staffed the majority of working hours, but be prepared for an answerphone in case they are away from their desks.


For Private Patients my secretary is Sylvia and can be contacted on 07471 201486. I have clinics and lists at

The Somerfield Hospital, London Road, Maidstone, Kent ME16 0TU, tel 01622 208000 and less frequently at the 

Kent Institute of Medicine and Surgery, Newnham Court Way, Weavering, Maidstone, Kent ME14 5FT

tel 01622 237500. I am also a Consultant with the Benenden Health Scheme at the Benenden Hospital.


Don't hesitate to ring through with any enquiries as the hospital tries to provide an efficient and helpful service and can make an appointment on the basis of a phone call. My usual clinic here is on Tuesday afternoon / evening.


I am always delighted to consider work experience students, requests for talks, legal reports etc - the above contact details work for these too.
