I am a Senior Consultant Paediatrician at Tunbridge Wells with more than 25 years of experience in Paediatrics. I trained at leading teaching hospitals in the UK and oversees. Having achieved my certificate for specialist training I have been a Consultant Paediatrician since 2006. I am also a Fellow of the RCPCH (Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health). My NHS practice is at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust (MTW) and I am Clinical Director for Paediatrics at MTW.
I am a General Paediatrician and have extensive experience in managing a wide variety of paediatric problems. I am happy to take referrals for all children from birth to 16 years of age. Appropriate patient management and positive patient and parent feedback lies at the heart of my clinical practice.
I have special interest in Paediatric Epilepsy and Neurological disorders. I am the lead for Paediatric epilepsy at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells Hospitals and run a busy multidisciplinary service. I have previously been chair for the South East Thames Paediatrics Epilepsy Group for three years to improve management of children with epilepsy in the region.
I have strong interest in teaching and training of junior doctors and medical students. I have been RCPCH tutor for KSS (Kent Surrey and Sussex deanery) paediatric trainees for eight years. Subsequently I was an undergraduate tutor for medical students from Guy's, King's and St Thomas' hospitals for four years.
I am actively involved with MRCPCH clinical examination of Paediatric trainees and have been the MRCPCH clinical examiner. I am the founding director for The Tunbridge Wells MRCPCH Clinical Courses.
