In 1996 he was awarded an MD on the molecular biology of breast cancer by the University of Cambridge and received the Intercollegiate Fellowship in General Surgery.

The Gilmore Groin and Hernia Clinic has treated more than 8000 people for groin problems, including over 400 internationals, since it was founded in 1980. It pioneered the team approach to diagnosis and treatment of groin problems and is part of the London Sports Injury Clinic. The standard anatomical repair of Gilmore’s Groin is now termed the Marsh Modification of the Gilmore Technique, reflecting the adaptations that have been made since 2010. In 1996 Mr Marsh set up, and still runs, the Ivry Street Minor Surgery Unit in Ipswich, Suffolk where he performs local anaesthetic surgery for the CCG, including around 200 vasectomies a year.
