Ed qualified as a doctor in 2007, starting his training in Oxford as a paediatrician, before moving to London two years ago to start specialist training as a paediatric gastroenterologist. He has worked in a number of children’s hospitals in London, including Great Ormond Street Hospital, The Royal London Hospital and King’s College Hospital – where he has developed a clinical interest in nutrition, inflammatory bowel disease and paediatric endoscopy.
Ed has been an enthusiastic advocate of medical education projects – developing and implementing a core medical education training programme for paediatrics in Oxfordshire and surrounding areas. Most recently he joined a summer scheme providing teaching and training to nurses in rural Malawi in the assessment and treatment of acute illness in children.
Throughout his training, Ed had been involved in clinical leadership and management, undertaking a number of quality improvement projects and leadership roles. He is currently the national representative for trainees in his speciality at the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.
He hopes that his time at Bupa will provide new insights in how to best organise and manage the delivery of care, developing systems that are patient-centred and focused on improving health outcomes and experience.
