Dr Terry Matthews Consultant Paediatrician at Spire Hartswood Hospital

The guest on this week’s Body Talk show was Dr Terry Matthews who is a consultant paediatrician at Spire Hartswood Hospital. Terry has many years’ experience as a general paediatrician in both the NHS and private practice.

He has now retired from the NHS and works solely in private practice. During his training he was sent by the Medical Research Council to West Africa to do some research in infectious diseases in malnourished children and became interested in infections. While working as a consultant locally he became interested in medical law and took a law degree leading to work acting as an expert witness. For his clinical work he has maintained a general paediatric practice accepting referrals from local GP's for any children's diseases, and finds his most common referrals relate to recurrent infections, allergies and bowel problems.

Terry told us about the highlights in his career which has covered many years, which then led to his thoughts on current medical care trends. We then looked at some of the common allergies in Children.
