I single handedly set up the national award winning neuromuscular service at Addenbrooke's following my appointment in April 2011 and have recently launched the Headache service for East of England. Since moving to Cambridge - I have also started my private practice at several hospitals but consult largely at the Spire Cambridge Hospital.

I specialise in Paediatric Neuromuscular disorders, Headaches, Tic disorders and Tourette's, Movement disorders, Epilepsy, CNS demyelinating and developmental disorders. I have a vast experience in Paediatric psychosomatic disorders and have published on the subject.
