I am a Consultant Paediatric Endocrinologist at Great Ormond Street">Great Ormond Street Hospital and am clincal lead for the department. I have practised medicine for >25 years, and have worked as a consultant for >14 years. My clinical practice encompasses all areas of paediatric and adolescent endocrinology and diabetes.
As a parent (I live in London with my two children), I realise you need to have trust in the doctor looking after your child. I see children and young people quickly and efficiently and only request investigations and start treatments if absolutely necessary. I understand the importance of being friendly, approachable, and in providing clear, jargon-free explanations. My experience includes managing patients from all cultures and backgrounds, and I'm proud to offer everyone I see the same level of service.
I studied medicine at Leeds University. I trained in paediatric medicine and specialised in endocrinology in London, Oxford and Cambridge. I was awarded an MD with commendation for research undertaken in childhood type 1 diabetes. I have been invited to speak at numerous national and international meetings, and have received several awards during my undergraduate and postgraduate training.
I see children and young people up to age 18 years and can advise on some of the follwing problems;
growth (short and tall stature)
puberty (early and delayed)
all forms of diabetes
thyroid problems (under and over-active)
other disorders (adrenal, bone, and rare, complex endocrine conditions)
