About me

I am a consultant paediatrician and specialist Paediatric Gastroenterologist at Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Academic Lead for Gastroenterology at UCL Institute for Child Health and Great Ormond Street Hospital. I have a strong passion for Paediatrics and Gastroenterology with a mission to improve the care of children suffering gastrointestinal conditions based on excellent clinical care and effective translation of contemporary advances in Medicine and research. I am married with 3 beautiful, very lively children!

I run specialist NHS and private clinical services for children with gut motility (nerve and muscle) disorders, which include state-of-the-art diagnostics, in-patient and out-patient facilities. The service is also a designated UK national centre for the diagnosis and management of severe gut diseases including intestinal pseudo-obstruction and receives referrals internationally.

I chair the British (BSPGHAN) gut motility disorders working group and sit on committees governing clinical gastroenterology and research across Europe (ESPGHAN, UEG and MCRN). I enjoy education and am an executive director of the Academy of Paediatric Gastroenterology (www.a-p-g.org) and lead teaching initiatives for patients, parents and medical specialists.
