About me

I graduated from Leicester University in 2003 and trained in paediatrics and respiratory medicine throughout the North in Stoke-on-Trent, Liverpool (Alder Hey) and Sheffield Children’s hospital, before completing his sub-specialty respiratory paediatric training in Leicester. I spent 2 years as a cystic fibrosis clinical fellow researching fungal disease in cystic fibrosis before taking a consultants post at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital in 2014.
I have over 8 years experience in paediatric respiratory medicine looking after children from birth to 17 years of age, covering all aspects, mainly looking after children with asthma, wheezing, other atopy, noisy breathing, chronic cough and recurrent infections of both the upper and lower respiratory tract.
I also manage children with sleep disordered breathing, snoring and sleep related problems/issues.
My clinical work mainly relates to reviewing patients in clinic and carrying out appropriate blood tests, radiological investigations, lung function tests. I also perform flexible fibreoptic bronchoscopy on children in theatres under a general anaesthetic, this is for diagnostic purposes and can be required for some children with undiagnosed respiratory complaints. I performs on average 40-50 bronchoscopies per year.
My private practice takes place at the Spire Manchester in Didsbury.
