I have worked in paediatric posts both in the UK and abroad
(Australia and Malawi). I am now based at Bishop Auckland Hospital,
providing an outpatient / community service for South Durham within
a Child Development Team. I specialise in assessing and managing
children with developmental difficulties or neurological disability
(including learning disability and autism).
I also provide an outpatient service for the assessment and
management of children and young people with epilepsy. I have a
particular interest in improving palliative care services for
children with life threatening or life limiting conditions, and am
a member of the regional palliative care network.
'Every aspect of my emergency care was dealt with quickly,
efficiently and professionally with full explanations and
compassion from all staff involved'.
