I am a Paediatrician and Specialist in:

  • childhood serious illnesses
  • childhood respiratory diseases
  • childhood sleep disorders

I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. I am listed on the General Medical Council (GMC) Specialist Register.

My Private Practice is based at 84 Harley Street in London, 243 Great Portland Street in London and New Malden Diagnostic Centre in Surrey. I am accessible, available and aim to provide the highest standard of consultation and care for children. I provide medical reports promptly and communicate properly with others involved in my patient's care.

I am the founder of the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at St May’s Hospital London and one of the pioneers of "mobile intensive care" a system for transport of seriously ill children. I was one of 400 people invited to the Millennium Celebration of Achievement Luncheon, in the presence of Her Majesty, The Queen.

I was appointed Senior Lecturer at Imperial College London and Consultant at St. Mary’s Hospital London in 1992, since when I have been in practice as a specialist. In 2006, I was promoted to Reader at Imperial College and have since practiced as Clinician Scientist doing translational research into serious childhood diseases such as meningitis and septicaemia and respiratory diseases such as asthma and bronchiolitis. My current research focus is on sleep and breathing in children with asthma and sleep patterns in babies.

I am an active fund raiser and co-founder of the charity COSMIC (Children of St. Mary’s Intensive Care), which was instrumental in the setup the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit and provides ongoing support for families, research projects and training and education.

I am on the UK Register of Expert Witnesses and a Member of Family Justice Council.
