Dr Mars Skae

Consultant Paediatric Endocrinologist


A Malaysian by birth, I moved to the United Kingdom to read medicine at Sheffield University and graduated in 1998. I then obtained my membership to the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health before completing my training in paediatrics in Manchester.

Post completion of training, I pursued further sub-specialty training in paediatric endocrinology and undertook a Clinical Research Fellowship in congenital hyperinsulinism, completing a postgraduate research degree at the University of Manchester (UoM).

I was appointed as a Consultant Paediatric Endocrinologist at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital in 2010 and am currently the clinical lead for the Department of Paediatric Endocrinology and lead clinician for paediatric obesity, disorders of sexual differentiation. I have also developed interests in metabolic bone diseases with a particular focus on skeletal dysplasias.

At national level, I have been involved in the revision of the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance document for the management of obesity and also the development of further guidance and monitoring by Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) on the subject.

I am also currently the Guidelines Officer for the British Society of Paediatric Endocrinology (BSPD). In addition to my clinical role, I am actively involved in the training of medical students, junior medical staff and maintain a keen interest in medical research as Principal and Chief investigator on a number of collaborative national and international studies.

Honorary Senior Lecturer, University of Manchester.

My interest outside the medical field include singing, music and occasionally playing in a band when time affords. I am a keen cook and baker (with the secret desire to enter the Bake Off and open a café when I retire). I love rambling in the Peak District and invest some of my energies in a number of church based community projects for the underprivileged and homeless.
