I am a Consultant Paediatric Surgeon at Imperial College Healthcare Trust and Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, specialising in laparoscopic and gastrointestinal surgery. I was previously a Locum Consultant Specialist Neonatal and Paediatric Surgeon at Great Ormond Street Hospital and UCLH. I am passionate about Quality Improvement and engaging patients in healthcare. My research interests include neonatal and paediatric surgery and I have published widely on several topics, especially necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). Your feedback is really important to me and helps me to improve the care I provide, thank you.
As parents anxiously waiting to hear that everything went to plan. We really appreciated that Miss Rees came straight from theatre to let us know that everything had gone well. She really put our minds at ease after what has been a very challenging couple of months.
We owe our son's life to Clare, if it wasn't for her quick thinking and medical instinct he may not be here today. Clare's bedside manner is exceptional, although very blunt due to the severity of the procedure we felt assured that Arthur was in great hands. At first we were slightly intimidated by Clare but due to how often Clare visited after surgery we warmed to her very quickly. We felt that Clare takes great pride in her patients well being and is a model professional. When we aired our concerns, Clare took the time to listen and took these into account when giving her advice. The NHS could do with a lot more employees like Clare.
Miss Rees made my son and I feel really comfortable, she is extremely friendly and professional. She went through everything with us before the surgery and explained everything post surgery with no questions unanswered. She made feel at ease during a very difficult time.
