About me

I have more than 17 years of pediatrics experience in the United Kingdom. I am currently working as Consultant Pediatrician since 2013 and Deputy Clinical Director for Neonatology since 2014 in Lister Hospital, Stevenage, Hertfordshire. I am the Clinical Governance Lead for the department of Neonatology, ensuring high quality of care is provided to the patient’s and also ensuring patient safety is maintained and improved in the department. Due to the unique training culture within the NHS, my clinical experiences have been rich and varied. Due to my passion to gain expertise in Paediatrics I have completed paediatric training by working in several centres of excellence across United Kingdom such as Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital in London, Evelina Children’s Hospital in London, Hammersmith Hospital NHS Trust in London, Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham and Luton & Dunstable Hospital in Luton.

I have seen and treated huge numbers of children over the years with both common and complex medical conditions. My experience includes treating patients from multicultural backgrounds and I am proud to offer anyone I see the same level of service. I keep myself up to date with clinical knowledge and research hence I practice evidence based medicine. As a parent, myself I understand the importance of being friendly, approachable with clear and jargon free explanations. I see children and young people quickly and efficiently.
Multi source feedback from patients rated me as very good to excellent for the care and treatment I have provided and 100% would recommend my services to friends and family. I have demonstrated leadership quality and excellent patient care which is reflected in the feedback from the department staff. I have undertaken many service improvement projects and audits leading to improvement in patient care. I am committed to provide high quality training and supervision to junior doctors, reflected in junior doctors and colleagues feedback.

I am passionate to teach medical students and hospital staff. I am honorary senior clinical lecturer for Paediatric students at University College London and Cambridge medical school. I am new born life support instructor and neonatal simulation training instructor providing service to train health care professionals in new-born life support course and simulation training.

I have published my research work in international peer reviewed journals such as American Journal of Haematology and Oncology, European Journal of Paediatrics and British Journal of Paediatric Surgery. I have presented my research and other projects in the international, national and regional conferences. I have been awarded with NHS clinical excellence award in 2016 at the Lister Hospital
