  • Biography

    Following graduation from Glasgow University, I came to Newcastle for paediatric training. Alongside my clinical training in paediatric rheumatology, I was awarded an Educational Research Fellowship by Arthritis Research UK to look in more detail at how to teach joint examination in children. I was appointed to my Consultant post in 2011 and enjoy working within our multidisciplinary team. I continue to have a strong interest in education and research, particularly around educational interventions to optimise diagnosis and referral for children and young people with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.


    I am currently CSAC Assessment Adviser, and involved in both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching.
