About me

Background -
I have been practising medicine for over 25 years, and have worked at consultant level for 11 years. My clinical practice encompasses all areas of paediatric and adolescent endocrinology and diabetes.

Thanks to the unique training culture within the NHS, my clinical experiences have been rich and varied. I have been lucky enough to work in several specialist centres across the country, and have seen huge numbers of children over the years with both common and extremely complex endocrine conditions. My experience includes patients from all cultures and backgrounds, and I'm proud to offer anyone I see the same level of service. As well as my clinical work, I am research-active, and I use this as an evidence base for my clinical practice.

I see children and young people quickly and efficiently and only request investigations and start treatments if absolutely necessary. As a parent myself I understand the importance of being friendly and approachable, and clear, jargon-free explanations.

Training -
I trained at Leeds University Medical School where I received an honours degree in medicine (1991). I went on to train in paediatric medicine in London (1996) before specialising in paediatric endocrinology and diabetes in London and Oxford (2004). I was awarded an MD with commendation for research undertaken at Cambridge on the subject of the hormonal determinants of microvascular disease in type 1 diabetes (2006). Subsequently, I was appointed as a consultant in paediatric endocrinology and diabetes, initially at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital (2005), then at St Barts and the London Hospitals (2010). I am now very proud to be at Great Ormond Street and Institute of Child Health as consultant and honorary senior lecturer (2012). I have been invited to speak at numerous national and international meetings, and have received several awards during my undergraduate and postgraduate training. I sit on a number of national committees and working groups, and am diabetes officer for BSPED.
