As a general paediatrician I treat and support children with a variety of paediatric problems including recurrent infections, feeding difficulties, cow’s milk protein allergy, childhood constipation, asthma and wheeze, childhood migraine and headaches, urinary tract infections, childhood eczema and common skin problems. I assess children with endocrine problems including thyroid disorder, delayed puberty, precocious puberty and short stature.

I have presented in national paediatric diabetes symposium and diabetes UK conferences. I see patients referred by GPs and colleagues from other paediatric specialties. During the initial consultation which can last up to 45 min, the family have an opportunity to discuss their concerns, I perform a detailed clinical examination and formulate and discuss the management plan. The letter summarising the consultation will be sent to the referring doctor and a copy will be sent to the family.
