Dr Maiden is the Chief of Medicine and Emergency Care and one of the senior consultants in the Department of Gastroenterology at Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust. He is one of the only two accredited consultant colonoscopists for the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program in Tunbridge Wells. He specialises in endoscopy, colonoscopy, capsule endoscopy ('Pill Cam') and in particular, interventional endoscopy (polyp removal) and enteroscopy of the small bowel.

Dr Maiden trained at University College and Middlesex School of Medicine, London, gaining a BSc in Anatomy and Basic Medical Sciences before graduating as a doctor in 1993. Completing his general medical training in Poole, Dorset, he returned to London and South East Thames to complete his specialist training at the Kent & Sussex, Guy’s & St Thomas’, King’s College and Lewisham Hospitals. He is dual accredited in both General (internal) medicine and gastroenterology. Dr Maiden has been a consultant at the Tunbridge Wells Hospital since December 2008 and is happy to receive referrals on all aspects of gastroenterology (stomach and bowels) and hepatology (liver), including small bowel pathology and nutrition. His research of small bowel pathology, including capsule endoscopy and faecal calprotectin, at King's College London culminated in the post graduate, Master's Degree of Doctor of Medicine in 2008. In this time he gained considerable experience in capsule endoscopy and is considered a national opinion on the subject.
