About me

I am a Consultant Paediatrician with 25 years’ experience and I have a special interest in Paediatric allergy. My general medical training (MBCHB) was achieved in Cape Town, South Africa. I then subsequently completed my Paediatric training (MRCP, MRCPCH) in London.

I was fortunate to complete a fellowship year in Australia at the Sydney Children’s Hospital.

Training over 3 continents has allowed me to gain a wealth of Paediatric experience and knowledge, ensuring the best possible care for my patients.

In my NHS consultant practice I worked at the Royal Manchester Children’ Hospital for 3 years and then transferred to the Salford Royal Hospital (‘Hope Hospital’), Here I was instrumental in setting up and leading the innovative Panda Unit which encompasses a busy Paediatric Emergency Department and observation ward.

I am a member of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), the Association of Paediatric Emergency Medicine (APEM) and the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI).

Private patients are seen at the Alexandra Hospital, Cheadle and Spire Manchester and Spire Hale. Outside of these clinics I can provide home visits by appointment or on an emergency basis.
