Professional Biography

Ed Seward trained in Edinburgh before moving to Liverpool and finally North East London, obtaining a consultant post at Barts Health NHS Trust. As Endoscopy Lead he developed a sub-specialist interest in therapeutic Endoscopy as well as pursuing a passion for service improvement and redesign, which culminated in his appointment as a National Clinical Advisor for Endoscopy. {{ label }}

More recently, he has been responsible for piloting a pathway to shorten diagnostic waits in colorectal cancer which was shortlisted for a prestigious BMJ award, and has been taken up nationally by Cancer Research UK.

Ed was appointed to UCLH in 2014 to deliver ‘Bowel Scope’ for the North central area of London – the national plan to provide screening for bowel cancer and polyps to all 55 year olds. He is also tasked with helping to deliver an interventional colonoscopy service, and to improve the colonoscopy teaching and research brief at UCLH. Alongside this, he also works as a Vanguard™ early diagnosis lead for colorectal cancer and is involved in a critical piece of research to introduce Faecal Immunochemical Testing (FIT) to primary care across North London and Essex to optimise the pathway for people with bowel symptoms.

He was appointed Director of Endoscopy at UCLH in 2019 and contributes towards research into use of Artificial Intelligence in endoscopy.
