Dr Ben Hope joined King's College Hospital as a GI consultant in 2012, having trained in national referral centres in New Zealand and Ireland. His research interests include inflammatory bowel disease and coeliac disease. The majority of children with GI upset are ultimately given a "functional" diagnosis such as irritable bowel syndrome and Dr Hope aims to quickly identify what the problem is with a minimum of invasive procedures so that the child receives the most suitable intervention.
