"Spire Manchester Hospital brings high-quality paediatric endocrinology care delivered by a team of consultants with national and international reputations."
I am a Consultant Paediatric Endocrinologist, managing growth and hormone problems in children. I trained in Manchester and have been a consultant at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital since 2006. In my clinical practice, I provide advice and treatment to children and families with problems related to growth, adrenal and thyroid disorders. I have a special interest in delayed puberty and hypoglycaemia due to Congenital Hyperinsulinism. I have a large practice in the NHS, where I strive to provide parents and families the best quality of care, both for those with relatively common and those with complex and difficult hormonal conditions.
The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital is a national centre for the treatment of the rare disorder of Congenital Hyperinsulinism. As lead for the Northern Congenital Hyperinsulinism Service (NORCHI), I have been responsible for innovations such as 18-Fluorodopa PET-CT scanning and established the reputation of the service internationally through strong research collaborations with the University of Manchester and networks with major centres in Europe and the US. It is not surprising that I have a long list of publications in the field of Congenital Hyperinsulinism, which is my dominant research area.
I have led the department of paediatric endocrinology for three years, during which time I instituted several important change management programmes which enhanced the quality of patient care and experience and improved the financial position of our service. I have a strong interest in quality and clinical effectiveness, having served in the divisional clinical effectiveness committee in the hospital for five years and actively participating in quality and peer reviews both within the Trust and nationally for the British Society for Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes. I continue to be a champion of quality in my NHS Trust through my participation in transformation services related to outpatient experience.
At present I have an advisory role in the British National Formulary for Children, a highly respected and renowned formulary. In my European role, I used to edit the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology Newsletter; I am now the Project Lead for website design for the same society and an associate editor for the second most cited open access journal in endocrinology with a high impact factor (3.675).

I am responsible for the NORCHI Charitable Fund that helps develop research and education in the rare disease of Congenital Hyperinsulinism. I have been closely associated with the International Charity in Congenital Hyperinsulinism and am in the process of designing an app to improve parent understanding and monitoring of the condition. I enjoy working with young people and have volunteered my services at the Timperley Duke of Edinburgh expedition programme. In my meagre spare time outside clinical work and research, I enjoy running and hiking, reading books and playing a musical instrument called the sarode.
