MB ChB (Edin), MRCP, FRCPCH, FHEA
I have always wanted to be a Children's Doctor. I went to the Medical School at the University of Edinburgh in 1986 and graduated in 1991. I began working in paediatrics immediately and did my junior doctor training in Edinburgh and Glasgow. I began working as a Consultant Paediatrician at the James Paget University Hospital in 2000. I deal with all children's problems (General Paediatrics) but I have particular skills in dealing with asthma, eczema and allergies.
I run General Paediatric clinics as well as specialist asthma and allergy clinics for the NHS. I also undertake the reporting of overnight sleep studies to investigate for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome.
At the James Paget University Hosptial, I am the Clinical Lead for the Paediatric Department. I am also the JPUH Clinical Lead for Transformation, which means that I am involved in helping to provide services through the Trust more efficiently.
In addition to my clinical work, I am also proud to be an honorary lecturer at the University of East Anglia. I am a founder member and co-chair of the Paediatric Allergy Network of East Anglia (PANEA) which provides education and networking for doctors, nurses and dieticians across our region.
Spire Norwich Hospital is only able to provide COVID-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.

I like to have a busy life!
I enjoy spending my spare time with my wife and three children (and two dogs). This could include camping, Martial arts, watching football or sailing on the Broads.
I have personal/family experience of asthma, allergies, eczema, coeliac disease, tantrums in toddlers and stroppy teenagers.
