I qualified in medicine from Manchester in 2000. Following house jobs in the North West, I moved to Yorkshire for my paediatric training, gaining experience around the region in many different specialities, in particular child protection. I was appointed to the post of Consultant Paediatrician and Named Doctor for Safeguarding Children in Harrogate in 2014.
Out of work I enjoy running, cycling, playing the violin in a local orchestra and chasing after three active boys and a dog! I am also a leader for my local cub scout pack.
