Paediatric high dependency care, paediatric early warning scores and the deteriorating child,


I trained at the University of Manchester and qualified in 2005. I completed paediatric training in the

North West Deanery (Greater Manchester) including a number of years at Royal Manchester

Children’s Hospital. After completing my training I took up a senior fellow post with the North West and North Wales Paediatric Transport Service (NWTS). I was appointed as a consultant in paediatric critical care in 2016 and work on the high dependency unit. I am the clinical lead for our paediatric early warning score system and lead on supporting and developing the critical care advanced practitioners. I am in the process of developing a paediatric critical care outreach service.
