  • Biography

    I qualified from the University of Birmingham in 1991, and then trained in paediatrics around the West Midlands and then in New Zealand.

    I returned to train in Paediatric Rheumatology at Birmingham Children’s Hospital and then joined the Paediatric Rheumatology team at the Great North Children’s Hospital as a consultant in 2002.

    As well as my work here I am currently the Chairman of the Clinical Affairs Committee for the British Society for Paediatric and Adolescent Rheumatology (BSPAR).

    I am married, with 2 fast-growing boys. I play hockey for Tynedale and am a keen birdwatcher (and occasional twitcher).
