Dr Ashley Reece

Consultant Paediatrician

MBChB, MSc, FRCPCH, FHEA, PgCert (Med Ed) FAcad MEd

I am a Consultant Paediatrician at Watford General Hospital. I have a special responsibility for the Children's Emergency Department and advocates an ambulatory philosophy aiming to treat children at home and out of hospital where practical. I am a General Paediatrician and have experience in many common conditions seen in children. I practise paediatrics with a child and family-centred approach and believe that children and young people should be involved in their care as much as possible.

I qualified in Leeds in 1995 and started working with children immediately. Trained in and around Yorkshire, I moved to London for registrar training in 2000. I completed an MSc in clinical paediatrics in 2003 and was appointed as Clinical Lecturer at University College London. I have been a consultant at Watford General Hospital since 2005.

I have an interest in medical education, am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy and have received many distinguished teacher awards from University Medical Students including an Excellence in Medical Education Award from University College Hospital in 2009.

I have also been published on aspects of clinical paediatrics and medical education. In 2008 I published an evidence-based review which received worldwide media attention. I have also published original research in Medical Education and Archives of Disease in Children journals.
