Professional profile

I have been working with children, since qualifying as a doctor in 1993. I completed my higher specialist training at Evelina Children's Hospital, London and other teaching hospitals in south east London. After gaining entry into the GMC’s specialist register in 2008, I joined as a Consultant Paediatrician at Maidstone Hospital at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells Hospital at Pembury, Kent. I have a special interest in Paediatric Cardiology and Nephrology with close networking with cardiologists at the Royal Brompton Hospital London and the nephrologists at the Evelina Children's Hospital London. I regularly teach medical students from King’s College London and St. George’s University London. I am a visiting lecturer at London South Bank University. I teach Paediatric Simulation and Resuscitation training for medical students and junior doctors. I am a qualified instructor for European Paediatric Life Support course. Being a father helps me to view the children’s problems from the parents’ as well as the children’s perspective.
