  • Biography

    I graduated from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 2001 with distinction. I undertook both my basic surgical training and my higher surgical training in otolaryngology in the North East. During my training I developed a specialist interest in paediatric ENT and undertook a one year fellowship at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia where I was trained in all aspects of paediatric ENT.

    My main specialist interest is the management of children with airway disorders. I am part of the paediatric airway and tracheal multi-disciplinary teams. I am the lead for paediatric ENT, which has been based at the Great North Children’s Hospital since 2016.

    I am the Secretary of the British Association for Paediatric Otolaryngology, and teach on national paediatric ENT courses. I undertook my research training at the University of Leeds and completed a Master’s degree in health research, with distinction. I have published work mostly focused on the management of obstructive sleep apnoea, and tonsil and adenoid problems in children. I am the national chair of the NICE Airway Intervention Register, examining the use of balloons in the treatment of airway stenosis.
