I am Dr Simon Smale, a UK based gastroenterologist who works full time for the NHS.
In creating this site I hope to give patients and visitors a guide to some common gastrointestinal symptoms and diagnoses. I also hope to convey useful and accurate information about investigations and treatments used by gastroenterologists and other health care professionals managing gastrointestinal diseases.
It is not intended as a guide to diagnosis or treatment and should not be used as a replacement for consultation with an appropriately trained health professional.
I have largely omitted gastrointestinal cancers as these form a small part of my work and information about cancer is often freely available from other agencies.
I hope you find what you are looking for.
New videos, PDFs and Events will be coming soon
On occasion I participate in or organise public meetings where people can hear experts talk about their areas of expertise, ask them questions and discuss issues of interest.
Dr Simon Smale
works at Manchester University Foundation Trust and York Nuffield Hospital.
He has been a Consultant Gastroenterologist since 2005 and currently has a number of additional voluntary roles on top of his NHS work.
If you wish to be seen as a private patient please contact his private PA, Claire on
