Dr Philip Woodland, London Gastroenterologist


I am a Consultant Gastroenterologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Royal London Hospital (Barts Health NHS Trust), a top London teaching hospital. My private gastroenterology practice is at the Princess Grace Hospital, in London's premier medical district around Harley Street. I work as part of the London Digestive Health group of top gastroenterologists.


I completed my medical training at University College London Hospital, and have obtained a PhD in gastro-oesophageal reflux disease from Queen Mary University of London. I am a member of the Royal Collegel of Physicians, the British Gastroenterology Society and the American Gastroenterology Association.


My approach is to ensure patients feel at ease, giving them the time they need to explain their symptoms, and the impact this has on their lives. I am skilled at reaching the correct diagnosis and recommending the right treatments.


In my practice as an NHS and private gastroentetrologist, I diagnose and treat a wide range of gastrointestinal illness, including acid reflux (gastro-oesophageal reflux disease), Barrett’s oesophagus, difficulty swallowing, peptic ulcer disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and gastrointestinal cancers. I am an advanced endoscopist, meaning I am skilled at performing diagnostic and therapeutic gastroscopy, colonoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound.


I have an active research portfolio at Barts & The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, with a particular focus on research into gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and difficulty swallowing. I regularly give talks at international meetings on these subjects. I am on the British Society of Gastroenterology Neurogastroenterology Committee, am a member of the editorial board for the Neurogastroenterology & Motility Journal, and I peer review research proposals for the Bowel and Cancer Research Grants committee and the National Institute of Health Research.
