About Professor Sutcliffe

Professor Sutcliffe is a consultant paediatrician and Professor of General Paediatrics at the UCL and Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health.

He has 30 years of experience in looking after children and sees children with any disorder, sometimes to give second opinions. Families need to have their concerns sympathetically listened to and their child treated accordingly.

Prof Sutcliffe is married to a Rheumatologist (website) and has three children. During his time in training he became interested in helping children through medical research. He is unusual in having two doctorates one awarded by UCL and the other by the Free University of Brussels. In addition to being a specialist in both neurodevelopmental and general paediatrics, he has an international name as the most expert paediatrician for IVF children. Prof Sutcliffe is also a visiting Professor at the University of New South Wales.
