I was diagnosed aged 12 with the incurable bowel condition
Crohn's Disease. In late 2011 I became the 11th person to undergo a small
bowel transplant in the UK at The Churchill Hospital in Oxford. 

I started blogging about his journey through Bowel Transplant and my blog "beingapatient" has over 95,000 followers. I use social media to develop global
on line peer to peer communities covering over 20,000 patients. I am also privileged to develop social media strategies around patient engagement. My passion is mentoring patients and
their families and I am a published author & professional speaker. 

I have become the patient lead for #NHSSM, a facilitator for Centre for Patient Leadership
& digital strategy advisor to The Oxford Transplant Foundation where I
helped implement the first skype clinics. I am also founder of health tech start up
11Health.
