Professor Kevin Moore

Professor of Hepatology

MB BS FRCP BSc Ph.D

As a hepatolologist, Professor Moore sees patients with a wide range of liver diseases. He has a strong background in all aspects of general hepatology including alcohol misuse disorders, fatty liver disease as well as experience of looking after liver transplant patients.

Professor Moore trained at King’s College London.   He has a BSc and PhD in biochemistry.  He is in on the Specialist register for gastroenterology but only sees patients with Liver Disorders.  He was initially appointed as an MRC Senior Clinical Fellow, before becoming Professor of Hepatology. He worked on the liver transplant rota for 20 years, caring for patients before and after liver transplantation.  He now leads the Alcohol Care Team at the Royal Free Foundation NHS Trust, as well as seeing patients with undiagnosed liver disease.

He is also on the specialist register for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, as well as General Internal Medicine.  As a general physician he is happy to see patients from any speciality to review or discuss their medication, or to see patients with unusual drug metabolism or side effects.
