Jonnie is a Consultant Paediatrician, working both as a generalist and specialising in infections. He is the father of three girls and was previously a Governor of their school. Growing up in Leeds, he spent lots of time in youth work and informal education, where he discovered his passion for helping children achieve their potential.

He studied medicine at Cambridge and Oxford Universities, before moving to London to specialise in paediatrics. He worked in several London hospitals, including many years at Great Ormond Street and St Mary’s. He has an MSc (Distinction) in Clinical Paediatrics and a PhD from UCL for his research into vaccines against pneumonia. His research has been funded by the Medical Research Council and the Academy of Medical Sciences. In 2015, he received a Top Teacher Award from UCL Medical School. He has lectured on topics in childhood infections around the world.

Jonnie is a Consultant Paediatrician and Clinical Lead for Paediatrics at University College Hospital. His passion for holistic care has led him to develop networks of care with the local community, aiming to keep children out of hospital. He is actively involved in research as an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the UCL Institute of Child Health at Great Ormond Street.

He is happy to see all children, from newborns.
