    About

    Dr. Shameer Mehta is a highly skilled and experienced Gastroenterologist. He is one of only a few consultants who has been appointed to two London teaching hospitals: University College London Hospital and, currently, The Royal London Hospital (Bart's Health NHS Trust) where he is the Clinical Lead for Nutrition. His private practice is based at The London Digestive Centre and The Princess Grace Hospital, as well as Cleveland Clinic London where is also the Clinical Lead for Nutrition.

    He maintains a strong interest in research and education, both nationally and internationally and is an Honorary Associate Professor at University College London. He is also a passionate advocate for shared decision making between patient and physician and believes a healthy gut is vital for overall well-being. 

    He began his medical training at Guy’s and St Thomas’s Hospitals, before starting his Higher Specialist Training in North East London in gastroenterology. Following this, he then went on to complete a fellowship at Queen Mary’s and the Blizard Institute in medical education and basic science research. He was designated a fellow of the Higher Education Academy in recognition of his work. His research degree (MD) in basic science examined the role that microRNAs have in the control of the epithelial to mesenchymal transition and the development of intestinal fibrosis in Crohn’s disease. 

    Dr Mehta’s main role is as the Lead for the Intestinal Failure Service at The Royal London Hospital, one of the largest such services in the UK. He works in a multi-disciplinary fashion providing a comprehensive treatment plan to patients with complex nutritional care and intestinal failure. He also works with patients experiencing inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel disease and those with gastrointestinal disorders as a consequence of their cancer treatment. He currently holds the position of clinical lead for the trust’s Nutrition and Hydration Strategy Group, which attempts to improve nutritional provisions for patients, visitors and staff. 

    He has a track record of delivering high-quality research in areas including the role malnutrition in IBD, intestinal-failure associated liver disease, and pelvic radiation disease. He is invited regularly to present his findings at conferences and seminars globally and continues to publish in high-impact medical journals.  

    Dr. Mehta contributes to medical education as an accredited trainer for the ESPEN Clinical Nutrition Diploma, co-chairing the UCL Master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition and Public Health, and sits on the organising committee for the UCL postgraduate course in Clinical Nutrition.

    Dr Mehta looked after my for about 12 years to manage my Crohn's Disease and parental nutrition. I always felt extremely well looked after. He would take the time to fully explain any treatment options and answer as many questions as I had. He's a fantastic consultant and I was very sorry to see him leave UClH.

    Dr Mehta is a well mannered, compassionate and knowledgeable Dr. He listened to my concerns about my husband and explained in detail his opinion on why my husband has been unable to get the help he needs elsewhere. My husband's condition's are very complex, Dr Mehta acknowledged this and has recommended the very few other specialists who will hopefully be able to help. He also recommended some treatments that could help with my husband's pain and persistent vomiting. Highly recommend Dr Mehta.
