Ms Laura Hancock

I am a Consultant General and Colorectal Surgeon at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (Wythenshawe). I graduated from Imperial College School of Medicine, London and surgical training was undertaken in London, Oxford and the Northwest. This was followed by a National ALSGBI/RCS Eng Laparoscopic Colorectal Fellowship in Leeds in 2015.

My clinical interests include inflammatory bowel disease, colorectal cancer, proctology and laparoscopic colorectal surgery. I am the surgical lead for inflammatory bowel disease in the Trust.

My research interests include clinical and scientific research in a wide range of colorectal disorders including inflammatory bowel disease. I was a Royal College of Surgeons Research Fellow in Oxford in 2004 and was awarded a post-graduate research degree (MD) for investigating the clinical and genetic characteristics of Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis. I was the Pathological Society Surgical Travelling Fellow to Toronto in 2006. I am the Principal Investigator for a number of studies including the NIHR IBD BioResource.
