    An excellent all-round Hepatologist. From the common abnormalities in liver blood tests, to the increasingly popular Fibroscan, to the sickest patients with liver cirrhosis and failure, Nowlan is my “go-to” Liver specialist both in the NHS as well as in private practice.

    Nowlan is a dear colleague, whom I also had the pleasure of training with. He is a skilled clinician with a specific interest in chronic liver disease, which is a condition that concerns many of my patients with metabolic pathology. I utilize his opinion on a regular basis and I trust him implicitly to support my patients in their journeys under our care. Nowlan is not simply a good and responsive clinician but also someone that treats his patients with empathy, compassion and makes himself available to them.
