After my basic qualification I have completed more than 15 years of practice in the field of Gastroenterology and General medicine covering all aspects of this specialty. I have been practising as a Consultant Gastroenterologist since 2007 and have a specialist interest in all aspects of endoscopy, gastroenterology, liver and pancreatic disease. I have a keen interest in service development, teaching and training. As endoscopy lead I established a brand new three room endoscopy unit at Warrington Hospital and led the team to achieve national accreditation. I am currently the lead for Advancing Quality programme (AQuA) for the Trust and participate actively in achieving a high quality of care across both medical and surgical divisions of the hospital. As the joint lead for management of alcohol related liver disease for the AQuA programme I have streamlined guidelines for evidence based high quality management of this condition. I teach all levels of trainees nurses and colleagues to update them of recent advances and techniques. I am currently the lead for research in Gastroenterology for the Trust and we are actively recruiting to several national trials. As a keen family man, I enjoy my spare time interacting with children and travelling as much as possible. I also enjoy many sports, particularly cricket. I pride myself in being very open with patients and am keen to promote a patient centred approach to managing their illnesses.

Dr Ram immediately put me at ease as soon as the consultation started. He was very reassuring and explained everything fully. He was easy to talk to and I felt I could ask him any questions I wanted to. Thankfully the tests he carried out showed that no treatment was required for the symptoms I had presented with, but he did notice something very small on the scans that needed further investigation by a specialist team in Liverpool. When I saw the Consultant there he told me that Dr Ram had done very well to spot it. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Dr Ram to friends and family.
Dr Ramakrishnan is a superb doctor - he truly listens, cares and is very thorough. He is also one of the nicest people you could wish to meet - warm, friendly, kind and genuine.
I had an anaemia problem when I was put under the care of Dr Ram and I had to undergo several different procedures. At the start, during and end he was reassurring, explaining what was going to happen and what was happening during the procedure. He is polite and listens to what you have to say too. He kept my GP informed as to what procedures I needed to have and wrote to her after each one with the results. He took great care in explaining some minor indications to make sure that I wasn't worried about them. Together with the staff at the Spire Hospital my treatment could not have been better.
I had two ercp procedures carried out by Dr Ram, he took the time to explain the procedures to me and made me feel very relaxed. Also took the time after procedure to explain what he had done and the next steps. Amazing Doctor.
I am very pleased with Dr Ramakrishnar he gave me the best of attention explained everything clearly to me performed 3 procedures and removed two pollips that could have turned to cancer had all clear today Thank you very much J B Stevenson
