Professional profile

I am an accredited paediatrician having trained in London and the Southwest. Subsequent to this I received further training in rheumatology and in 2000 was appointed as consultant in paediatric rheumatology. This service is at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.

Within this area I assess and treat children (0-18ys) with musculoskeletal conditions.

My workload is equally divided between non-inflammatory pains (joints, back, sporting injury, hypermobility etc) and disease related (juvenile arthritis, infection, connective tissue etc).. . Over the past 6 yrs I have developed a special interest in chronic musculoskeletal pain and am clinical director of the national adolescent pain management unit in the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Bath.

Personal Profile

Like many working mums (I have 3 children 11, 10 and 9 months) most of my time outside work is centred on family life. I have a keen interest in all sports, particularly squash, hockey and running. As a family we love walking, camping and getting out on the water. We can also be spotted at folk festivals in the summer!
