- Paediatric emergency medicine
In 20 years of Paediatric Practice I have trained in General Paediatrics & specialised in Emergency Medicine. This was useful as I got to train in Surgery, Orthopaedics,Anaesthetics and Adult A&E normally not experienced by Paediatricuans. It mrans that I have as broad a base as possible and yet working at Consultant level am able to deliver first class care very widely.
My biggest interest is in children who have some element of anxiety either causing or maintaining their symptoms. Instead of avoiding this, I can tackle it head on using Solution-Focused or coaching techniques. I am outcome rather than diagnosis-focused.
Areas of interest
Constipation; Anxiety disorders; Chronic Fatigue; Fibromylagia; Ongoing Pain / Depression (any cause) ;Abdominal Pain; Asthma, Urinary Problems; Foreskin Problems;General Paediatric Concerns; Eating / Nutrition Problems
