Consultant Paediatrician (Neurodisability) Child Health

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.
