About

  • Biography icon plus

    Dr Mehta is a Consultant Gastroenterologist at University College London Hospitals (UCLH) NHS Trust and Honorary Senior Lecturer at University College London. He has a specialist interest in Clinical Nutrition and Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and works within the highly-specialised Intestinal Failure Unit at UCLH. He cares for patients with complex nutritional and feeding problems as well as those suffering with gut symptoms as a result of previous cancer therapy, an often under-recognised group of patients. However, his clinical practice encompasses all aspects of gastroenterology including endoscopy, dyspepsia, reflux and functional gut disorders such as IBS.

    He has extensive clinical experience in these fields, has given several international presentations on his research work and continues to be involved with multi-national clinical trials to help advance the management of his patients.

    Dr Mehta qualified from Guy’s King’s and St. Thomas’ School of Medicine in 2003, having also obtained a BSc with honours in Molecular Medicine from the University of London. He underwent an advanced training programme in the management of patients with complex inflammatory bowel disease and intestinal failure at 3 separate London teaching hospitals before completing a joint fellowship in translational science research at the Blizard Institute, London and medical education at Queen Mary University of London. During this time he became a fellow of the Higher Education Academy in recognition of his postgraduate teaching work. His MD in basic science research has examined the role of microRNAs in the control of epithelial to mesenchymal transition and the development of intestinal fibrosis in patients with Crohn’s disease.

    Dr Mehta’s longstanding passion has been the delivery of individualised and patient-centred care. He has led on a range of far-reaching service development projects in four different London hospitals, all of which have been focused on improving patients’ experiences when they are taken ill.
