Biography:

I have been a Consultant Paediatric Intensivist in Manchester since 2002 having trained in Nottingham, Birmingham, Toronto and Melbourne. I have developed a special interest in intravenous fluids, sedation & neuromuscular blockade, management of major incidents and the medico-legal aspects of Paediatric Critical Care. More recently I have been working with the World Health Organisation on the issue of intravenous fluids in resource-limited areas and their short course on the clinical management of patients with severe acute respiratory infection. I have been Clinical Director for Paediatric Critical Care since 2019 and am now a Medical Examiner for the Manchester Royal Infirmary.
