Professional statement

Dr Carlo Nunes is a consultant physician and gastroenterologist based in Canterbury and Margate, who specialises in bowel cancer screening, indigestion (dyspepsia) and acid reflux, alongside capsule endoscopy, gastroscopy and colonoscopy. He privately practises at The Chaucer Hospital and Spencer Private Hospital, while his NHS base is East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust.

Dr Nunes is highly qualified, with an MBChB from the University of Stellenbosch, Cape Town, South Africa, and a FRCP in Medicine from the Royal College of Physicians (London). He also underwent basic medical and specialist training in gastroenterology and general medicine in the South Thames rotation. 

Here, he spent a period of four years at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital where he undertook a period of research with King's College London in oral Crohn's disease, orofacial granulomatosis and inflammatory bowel disease. He gained extensive experience in both upper and lower GI diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy, and completed his specialist training in gastroenterology and general medicine in 2008. 

This led him to develop a special interest in inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and general luminal gastroenterology, and he treats all gastroenterological conditions. He is also a nationally-accredited bowel cancer screening colonoscopist, and has developed a special interest in bowel cancer and advanced therapeutic endoscopy. Furthermore, he provides a small bowel capsule endoscopy service for the investigation of small bowel disease such as coeliac disease and inflammatory bowel disease.  

Dr Nunes is a respected clinical academic and is a lecturer for London colonoscopy training courses at St George's Hospital. His research has also been published in various peer-reviewed journals and he is a member of professional organisations including the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG), Royal College of Physicians (London) and the General Medical Council (GMC). He is also a member of the Medical Protection Society (MPS).
