    I trained in Newcastle, qualifying in 1991. My postgraduate training was mainly in  the North East of England, with a brief spell at Guy’s Hospital in London before returning to Newcastle. I obtained my first Consultant post here in 2006. I am involved in a number of areas of research including Type 2 diabetes in children and adolescents.
