Professional profile

Alastair Windsor trained at St Mary’s Hospital in London. Having spent three years in research at the Medical College of Virginia, USA, he returned as Lecturer and then Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant Surgeon to the Academic Surgical Unit at St James’ University Hospital, Leeds. A research and clinical interest in sepsis and nutrition provided an opportunity to join the staff at St Mark’s Hospital in London as colorectal surgeon and surgeon to the intestinal failure unit.

He has now moved to join the staff as Consultant Surgeon to University College Hospital London, and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University College London. In addition to his NHS practice he has also run a very busy private practice for more than ten years out of The London Clinic and 116 Harley Street.
