I have over 30 years experience in paediatric medicine and was revalidated by the GMC following a positive recommendation in 2013. I have a longstanding interest in paediatric gastroenterology, nutrition and food allergy and I am an accredited consultant in these sub-specialties. My paediatric clinical experience includes seeing children from birth to adolescence, with a range of general paediatric problems. These include failure to thrive, food allergy, heart murmurs, constipation / diarrhoea, abdominal pain, breathlessness, cough, chestiness, skin rashes, fits, loss of consciousness, headaches and fatigue. I provide a comprehensive paediatric service and more specialist services in paediatric gastroenterology including endoscopy, colonoscopy and skin prick testing.
