About Mark Cheetham


Mark Cheetham Colorectal and General Surgeon

I am a Consultant General  and Colorectal Surgeon  in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, UK.

I was educated at Oswestry School and then trained in medicine at St Thomas’ Hospital in London. After medical school, I trained in general surgery in the North West Thames region. I became particularly interested in colorectal surgery  and performed research at St Mark’s Hospital.  I have worked  as a consultant in the NHS at Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust and private practice since 2005. My private practice is based  at the Nuffield Health Shrewsbury Hospital.


I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, and a member of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland, the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland and the International Society of Surgeons.


Outside of surgery, I am interested in leadership and quality improvement in healthcare. I am currently Care Group Medical Director for Scheduled Care at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust.
I have been awarded a Health Foundation Generation Q Fellowship and I have recently completed an MSc in Quality Improvement and Leadership at Ashridge Business School.
