- Paediatric neurology
I am an experienced paediatric neurologist who trained in the UK at prestigious NHS institutions. I manage in-patients in Bristol, and provide neurological advice to paediatricians within the whole SW region of the UK. I run out-patient clinics for the NHS, and also for private patients.
I undertake consultations for medico-legal reports including those following road traffic accidents, and high value cerebral palsy cases. I am the lead neurologist at our nationally designated epilepsy surgery programme, one of only four in England. I have a post-graduate research degree from the University of London and undertake collaborative research studies. I publish medical articles in peer reviewed journals in the field of paediatric neurology. I have hosted postgraduate examinations in Bristol, and have served on the Council and been a Trustee of the British Paediatric Neurology Association which influences the direction of paediatric neurology in the UK.

Courses offered to GPs
I unfortunately do not offer these in view of limited free time for educational activities. However, I teach undergraduates and postgraduates during the course of my NHS duties and teach for free on national epilepsy courses run by the BPNA.
I do not undertake surgery so these outcomes are not supplied. However, I regularly undertake 360 feedback of my practice which includes parental satisfaction rates. Our epilepsy surgery programme undertakes regular audit.
