I have a broad clinical experience obtained from wide ranging
paediatric training rotations in PICU, haematology, oncology,
neurology, neurodisability, tertiary neonatology and community
paediatrics, apart from general paediatrics.
My current practice includes a balance of full time hospital
(acute) paediatric work and general paediatric clinics at UHND. I
see a wide range of general paediatric and neurological problems
including fits, faints and funny turns, abnormal gait, epilepsy and
headaches in the hospital setting.
I undertake neurodevelopmental clinics as part of community
paediatric team at Chester-le-Street Community Hospital. The clinic
includes a wide range of disorders including complex health needs,
syndromes, cerebral palsy, neuro-disability and developmental
assessments. I have an interest in epilepsy manifesting acutely or
as part of complex conditions. I am currently pursuing a masters
qualification in paediatric neurodisability.
I have remained active in management duties, taking on
additional roles as postgraduate tutor for RCPCH to oversee the
paediatric training provided by CDDFT to foundation doctors, GP
trainees and paediatric postgraduate trainees.

- could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
