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.

I have known Dr. Ram for quite a few years now and have found him to be an excellent consultant - always friendly, professional & understanding. He diagnosed my coeliac disease a couple of years ago and I have found that he is very knowledgeable, kind, considerate, proactive and efficient at organising the various tests required. From a patient point of view, he is very skilled when carrying out endoscopy procedures (both at Warrington Hospital and Spire Cheshire) and has a welcome calming influence on his patients during what can be a very worrying time. He has ensured that I continue to be monitored for my condition and it is nice to know that I will be reviewed annually by him. It is really helpful that he doesn't rush the appointments, which enables the patient to ask many questions which Dr. Ram is keen to answer fully and clearly. Most importantly, you feel that you can trust him. Other members of my family and friends have also been treated by Dr. Ram and they have the same view. In addition to the above, if you meet him outside of clinic, he recognises you straight away and is interested to know about how you are and asks about other members of the family/friends. I would say that he is quite unique. I would obviously recommend Dr. Ram without hesitation.
Doctor Ram was extremely helpful, he made me feel comfortable and listened to any issues I had, being a young girl this was very important to me. It is evident that he is a great doctor.
I recently saw Dr. Ramakrishnan at the Spire Cheshire Hospital and found his advice and diagnosis to be of the very highest standards. His knowledge and technical ability is exceptional with highly developed inter personal skills which enable you to clearly understand the details of your condition in a simple straightforward manner. He is an excellent listener and makes every effort to put you at ease both during the consultations and theatre experience and makes sure he takes the time to see you post theatre. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Ramakrishnan
I came to dr ram after an urgent bout of pain. He was kind, caring and professional and reached a diagnosis in a timely and effective manner. My case required inward referral which he completed swiftly and I received great care from him even after I was referred on. I would have no hesitation in recommending dr ram as he’s been nothing short of wonderful.
