Tell us a little about you.
I am a Consultant General Paediatrician based at Evelina London. I am involved in the education of training of doctors and medical students. I am also passionate about trying to improve things for children and their families.
How do you see the role?
In CYPHP, we are trying to work closely with GPs to help provide better support closer to home, and avoid children going to hospital, either to Emergency Departments or Outpatients.
What is your hope for the CYPHP programme?
I hope that in 5 years, families will feel more confident to manage their children’s’ illnesses themselves, and when they are worried, they will get great joined up care from the different professionals – nurses, GPs, and Paediatricians who are working in Lambeth and Southwark without having to go to hospital.
