Dr Austin was appointed as a Consultant Physician by Derby Hospitals in November 2004. He graduated from University of Birmingham in 1992 and trained in gastroenterology and later hepatology in the Trent region and the Liver Transplant Unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. The interaction between host and gut microbial flora in GI diseases was the subject of his PhD thesis awarded in 2004.

Dr Austin has been closely involved in developing dedicated high quality services for patients with liver disease in Derby since his appointment, including outreach services for viral hepatitis. He runs an active research programme and will lead one of ten national hubs for the first HTA-funded UK study in liver disease. In addition, he continues to provide the full range of endoscopic procedures including ERCP and endoscopic ultrasound.
