I am a consultant respiratory paediatrician, one of only a few in the UK who does nothing else. My NHS practice is at the Royal Brompton Hospital.
My specialist areas are sleep medicine for children, food allergies, cystic fibrosis, lung disease, gastroensophageal reflex and the diagnosis of odd coughs.
Following on from my doctoral thesis, my research interests centre on respiratory physiology and cystic fibrosis.
I have been invited to give lectures in many of the countries of Europe, the USA, Japan, Peru and South Africa.
I am the visiting professor of respiratory paediatrics at the Universities of Odessa and Visiting consultant in respiratory paediatrics in Lviv in Ukraine, Doha in Qatar and Thessalonika, Greece.
I have also appeared as a medical expert in legal cases in the UK high court and court of appeal and given evidence to a House of Lords select committee on allergy.
Children with asthma, cough, recurrent chest infections, poor sleeping/recurrent waking issues, snoring, night terrors and suspected food problems are welcome.
