Mr John Whiting

Mr John Whiting

EJSO Representative

John Whiting has been a consultant Upper GI surgeon at University Hospitals Birmingham, Queen Elizabeth since 2004.  He graduated from Manchester University in 1990 and undertook most of his training in the West Midlands. His MD thesis was supported by a Royal College of Surgeons grant and was on establishing the relationship between programmed cell death and a class of enzymes called matrix metallo-proteinases.

John is the lead clinician for Upper GI Surgery at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and his main specialisation is in oesophageal and gastric malignancies with a particular interest in developing fully minimally invasive surgery for these cancers. He has spent much time developing systems to allow collection of clinical and outcome data with a particular focus on engaging clinicians by ensuring that these systems are clinically useful. His pet hate is poor quality data.

Outside of medicine he is a keen glider pilot having competed at national level and spent many years as a gliding instructor.

Mr Whiting was appointed as the BASO Hon.Treasurer in 2016 and takes on the role of the EJSO Representive as of 21st Nov 2021.
