Dr Poonamallee Govindaraj

Consultant Paediatrician


"Excellent working atmosphere, easy to approach leadership and managerial team and caring nursing staff makes Spire Cardiff Hospital very special."

I graduated from the University of Madras in 1993 and went on to complete post-graduation in Paediatrics in 1997. I completed my paediatric specialty training RCPCH in 2009 and now have over 13 years of experience as a consultant paediatrician in the NHS. With over 25 years of experience in paediatrics, I am able to see and care for all general paediatric problems. I am also an advanced paediatric life support instructor and clinical lead in paediatrics.

I have a special interest in paediatric cardiology including heart murmur, palpitations, syncope and chest pain - with expertise in paediatric echocardiogram.

I am a member of the Welsh paediatric cardiovascular network, Welsh paediatric simulation group, the bronchiolitis steering group, RCPCH and am an advanced paediatric life support instructor.

In addition to my clinical work, I completed a clinical leadership programme with Academi Wales in 2019.
