I am a general paediatrician with over 25 years of paediatric experience. In the private sector I work with colleagues at Dr Ian Hay Ltd on the first floor of 234, Great Portland Street. I am usually at the practice on Wednesdays but together, we provide daily care for our patients. My NHS base is at University College Hospital close by where I am a general paediatrician with an interest in epilepsy.

I grew up in London and graduated from St George’s Hospital Medical School (University of London) in 1990. My paediatric training was at various London hospitals and I also completed the MSc in Community Paediatrics with distinction. Most of my training took place on a part time basis whilst I raised my family.

I have been a consultant paediatrician since 2005 and see myself very much as a generalist providing holistic and comprehensive medical care for infants, children and young people up to the age of 18 years. I am well connected with other paediatric specialists in London should a specialist referral be needed.

My other roles and responsibilities have included: Clinical Lead Paediatrics Royal Free Hospital 2006-2007, Divisional Clinical Director for Paediatrics and Adolescents University College Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust 2007-2012, Associate Responsible Officer UCLH 2012-2015, RCPCH College Tutor UCLH 2015-current. I also teach undergraduate and postgraduate students regularly using simulation, and run advanced life support courses and I am a RCPCH examiner.
