I am a Consultant Paediatrician/Neonatologist who relocated to Guernsey from the UK in 2009.
Prior to relocating I spent 13 years as a Consultant Neonatologist in a tertiary neonatal unit in a UK teaching hospital. I was Head of the Neonatal Service with over 12 000 deliveries, caring for both medical and surgical neonates for 10 of those years.
In Guernsey I work as a paediatrician/neonatologist caring for children from 0-18 years. Guernsey provides an entirely Consultant delivered service without junior staff or nurse practitioners. I cover all aspects of paediatrics, neonatology, child protection and some community paediatrics. I am currently the named doctor for child protection in Guernsey.
I have undertaken several SI reviews and RCA’s in Guernsey, and have had training in both.
