"Spire hospitals are well known for its high standards of clinical care. The working atmosphere is professional, caring as well as friendly."
I have been working as a consultant paediatrician in the UK since 1999. Previous to this I had worked in several hospitals across the Middle East spanning 12 years. During my training, I developed a special interest in congenital renal (kidney) problems, including detection antenatally (before birth) and providing counselling to pregnant mothers and management after birth. My interest means that I am a specialist in dealing with childhood related kidney and urinary tract problems. During my work at Leeds University, I also developed an interest in childhood constipation ad I have published a medical article in this field which can be found in the Internal Journal of Clinical Medicine. My varied career to date has allowed me to develop a solid skill set in managing various paediatric conditions.
I specialise in general paediatrics with a specific interest in: 1-General paediatric nephrology: this will involve childhood urinary tract problems. 2-Congenital renal (kidney) malformations: I provide counselling to pregnant mothers whom have had abnormal scans regarding the urinary tract of their babies. I am also able to assess and manage these babies after delivery. 3-I have special interest in childhood constipation and I have publication I this area.
My current work includes running three general paediatric clinics per week, providing emergency on call cover and regular patient ward rounds involving both general paediatrics and neonates.
1. I am the college tutor at Good hope hospital which means I am responsible for teaching university of Birmingham medical students and supervising the training of junior doctors. 2. I was the Clinical Director for the Paediatrics division at Heart of England Foundation Trust from 2010-2012. 3. I was the clinical Lead in Paediatrics at Good Hope hospital between 2007-2010. 4. I led the design and development of the new paediatric assessment unit at Good Hope Hospital.
In addition to my clinical work, I am an honorary senior lecturer at the University of Birmingham medical school. I designed and created an annual paediatric revision course for the final year medical students. I have received excellent formal feedback and have been awarded with the ‘Recognising Excellence in Medical Education’ (REME) award from the University of Birmingham. I am also leading the teaching programme at good hope hospitals and have been heavily involved in co-ordinating medical students across the trust. As well as this, I led on the design and development of the paediatric assessment unit at Good Hope Hospital; a project which took a year to complete and was opened as a fully functional unit in 2007 and still fully functional.
