Dr Richard Marley

Acute and general medicine, Gastroenterology

Medical interests: Liver disease, fibroscanning, upper GI and lower GI endoscopy, abdominal pain, acid reflux, altered bowel habit.



I look after patients with all forms of gastrointestinal and liver disease. Often I see patients with difficult to diagnose abdominal complaints, many who have already been through several investigations, either in the UK or abroad. I am very patient focused, and am fortunate to have close collaborations with other members of the gastroenterology team, as well as specialists in physiology and nutritional support. One of my specialist interests is in using Fibroscan as a tool to assess the extent of liver disease in patients without symptoms but whose liver function tests are abnormal. This includes patients with alcoholic and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and viral hepatitis. I also provide a review service for patients who are resident overseas, reviewing investigations and offering consultations via an internet connection if requested.
