I trained in London, and have been a children's doctor since 1994. I have worked in many of the major hospitals in the West Midlands, including Birmingham Children's Hospital, gaining a very wide range of experience.
I'm accredited by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health in General Paediatrics (general kids' issues) but my NHS work has been as a Consultant Paediatrician in Community Paediatrics which covered more specialised areas such as Disability, Autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. See my qualifications.
I was a NHS consultant for seven years and, amongst other things, headed up the team specialising in children with very complex conditions, including terminal illness. I now work independently, continuing to strive to provide an excellent standard of care.
There are very few children's doctors like me, who are confident working with such a wide range of childhood and teenage illnesses, developmental and social problems. This means that I can act as a 'one stop shop' working with your child holistically without the frequent need to refer elsewhere.
I do, however, have an excellent range of specialised colleagues, ranging from Consultant Experts to therapists in Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Psychology, Dietetics and other therapies, including some complementary therapies, with whom I can discuss problems and refer to when necessary to provide a safe and comprehensive service for you.
