Dr Andrew Millar is a leading consultant gastroenterologist in London, who specialises in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gastrointestinal cancer, indigestion, food intolerance and liver disease.
Dr Millar has been a consultant in gastroenterology since 1997, with a busy practice in an NHS associated teaching hospital and with clinics in the private sector. He has particular interests in the early diagnosis of gastrointestinal cancer and in providing a holistic and caring approach to patients with irritable bowel syndrome. He works alongside therapists and experienced dieticians who are trained in modern dietary approaches. He is an expert endoscopist and has carried out over 10,000 procedures. He ensures that patients have a comfortable and safe experience by working with anaesthetists for patients needing this service. For others, his skilled approach means that sedation can be avoided. The patient always makes the choice about the level of sedation.
He is the joint UCLH Cancer Collaborative Lead for Multidisciplinary Diagnostic Centres in the UK. This is part of a National NHS project funded by MacMillan Cancer and Cancer Research UK. He has presented this work at many conferences and to parliamentary committees on a number of occasions. He is the lead for Upper GI Cancer at his hospital and also the senior hepatologist (liver specialist) in his hospital.
Dr Millar works at the North Middlesex University Hospital and also as an honorary consultant at the Royal Free Hospital London. He has been appointed as an associate professor of medicine at St George’s University of Medicine at Grenada in the West Indies.
