Pediatric and Neonatology
I am retired as a child psychiatrist now I trained in Newcastle, England where Paediatrics was strong. The joint collaboration between Prof Issy Kolvin & Prof John Webb kept a strong interest in Clinical Paediatrics during my Child Psychiatry training. I spent 6 years in Birmingham before my long appointment here at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children Edinburgh. This gave me a close relationship with my Paediatric colleagues & teaching opportunities to medical students, nurses, & psychologist. After my retirement, I had brief teaching experiences in Armenia, Dohuk, Iraqi Kurdistan & Palestine where I learned about Child Mental health problems in new contexts. I would describe my interests as those of a pediatrician with an interest in Child Mental Health. I still think we are at our best for our patients when we work collaboratively. as there is "no physical health without mental health"
