Dr Natalie Lyth

I qualified in medicine at the University of Liverpool in 1997. Initially I trained as a General Practitioner, but it was through my work in general practice that I developed my interest in children’s developmental conditions and the impact they have on all aspects of the child’s and their families lives. I therefore transferred to paediatrics to further my knowledge and experience in these areas.

I set up and still lead the Autism Diagnostic Service for the Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby localities. In addition to my clinical work I am the Designated Doctor for Safeguarding, which includes supporting the needs of children who are looked after, and I am the Clinical Director for the Children’s and County Wide Community Care directorate.
