    About

    Dr Ed Abrahamson is a highly experienced general paediatrician in London, with 33 years of flying hours.

He actively involves parents in all decision making.

    Aside from two educational medical books he has authored, he was a contributing author to the book, GROW by Frankie Bridge, published 2021 by Octopus Publishers, outlining advice and guidance for parents.

    His clinics are at BUPA Cromwell Hospital, Monday to Thursday

    Dr Abrahamson has received recognition for his work including a Bronze Clinical Excellence Award and being named in the top 100 children's doctors in Britain by The Times in 2012.

    He was Vice President of the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust 2019-2022 and is now an active supporter of the Wave Project. He lives in Cornwall half of the week with his husband, and is godfather to 2 Jack Russells who he adores and spends his weekends with.

    An excellent paediatrician! He always spots issues early and goes above and beyond for the children he sees and in his advice to parents (including making himself available out of hours via email which really is so kind and helpful of him). I have recommended him to many of my friends with children and they are all similarly complimentary of him.

    Dr Abrahamson saw my son a couple of months back and from the first moment he was very reassuring and thorough. I truly enjoyed the visits even though I was worried about my son. His experience and the details he goes through to explain the situation are totally suitable.

    An amazing paediatrician. My son was very unwell and Doctor Abrahamson got the bottom of the quickly and decisively. His bedside manner with children is fun and friendly and my son warmed to him immediately. Thank you for the wonderful service and for helping us find a solution to my sons illness.

    Dr Ed is the most wonderful paediatrician to our 2 children and a thoroughly lovely chap! Recently, our daughter was really poorly with a tummy bug and horribly let down by the NHS - Dr Ed came to her rescue putting many of his own commitments to one side to make sure she received the care required to make her well again. His immense experience prevented a potentially catastrophic outcome and we will be eternally grateful to him. Our kids love him (they’re always “on the phone to Dr Ed”) and so do we

    Incredible doctor. If it were not for him, we would not have a treatment plan that will help with our seven year old daughter's condition and effectively tranform her life. Hugely knowledgeable and explained something outside his specialism in a way that made everything clear and that our specialist in seven years was never able to. Completely indebted to him and so glad to have listened to recommendations and have found him.
