I completed my higher specialist training at Evelina Children's Hospital, London and other teaching hospitals in south east London. After gaining entry into the GMC’s specialist register in 2008, I joined as a Consultant Paediatrician at Maidstone Hospital at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells Hospital at Pembury, Kent. I have a special interest in Paediatric Cardiology and Nephrology with close networking with cardiologists at the Royal Brompton Hospital London and the nephrologists at the Evelina Children's Hospital London.

I teach Paediatric Simulation and Resuscitation training for medical students and junior doctors. I am a qualified instructor for European Paediatric Life Support course. Being a father helps me to view the children’s problems from the parents’ as well as the children’s perspective.

Cardiac problems: Heart murmur, chest pain, palpitations, family history of heart problems. Respiratory problems: Asthma, wheeze, chronic cough, sleep apnoea.

We also fundraise by organising training courses in the UK for paediatricians and specialist nurses.
