As well as our GP services we also have a children’s doctor, Consultant Pediatrician Dr Tim Ubhi working with the team offering direct access appointments with no need for GP referral.
Dr Tim Ubhi is a Consultant Paediatrician and a Fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics & Child health. He has over 24 years experience in child health.
Dr Ubhi teamed up with Stonegate medical in 2017 and was drawn by our passion to provide the very best care to our patients. Because of his broad background in paediatrics, Dr Ubhi is happy to see most paediatric problems and if he can’t help he will help direct your care to the most appropriate person.
At the time of booking, the clinic will take an overview of your children’s concerns and will liaise with Dr Ubhi to ensure that we are best placed to assist.
The initial consultation with Dr Ubhi is £275.00 which is an extended appointment typically around 45 minutes with follow up appointments at £225.00 which are typically around 30 minutes.
Dr Ubhi’s background:
Dr Ubhi undertook his undergraduate studies at Leeds university where he obtained his degrees in medicine and surgery together with a batchelor of science degree in genetics & biochemistry. He went on to spend 12 years at St James’s university hospital in Leeds many of which were as a university lecturer in paediatrics and child health. He was responsible for the training of undergraduate students in paediatrics & child health and has seen many of his former students go on and establish successful careers as paediatricians in the UK.
Whilst at St James’s university hospital, Dr Ubhi completed his research to help children with cerebral palsy to walk using botulinum toxin (Botox). For this piece of work he was awarded the prestigious Michael Blacow memorial prize by the Royal College of Paediatrics & Child Health. Dr Ubhi was then awarded a medical research council clinical training fellowship to develop novel treatments for children’s cancers. A large part of his training was in paediatric oncology with a particular interest in Ewing’s sarcoma but more recently Dr Ubhi has focussed on general paediatrics. As a consultant and clinical director in the Yorkshire region he noted the improvements in patient care that were necessary in order for paediatrics and child care to change so that we provided the best care for our patients, avoided unnecessary hospital admissions and reduced unnecessary illness in our paediatric population. Dr Ubhi has completed the NHS leadership academy Nye Bevan executive training programme and graduated in March 2016. He founded the Children’s e-Hospital on-line child health service in 2015 and is looking at using innovative ways to improve child health delivery in the UK including the use of novel devices to help measure how unwell a child is and to help determine whether or not they need to seek medical help. One of these devices, the HOTPOD®, will allow parents to make a robust assessment of their child’s health with specialist paediatric support available on-line to help guide them.
Dr Ubhi has 3 grown up children the eldest of which is currently studying medicine in London and who hopes to follow in his father’s footsteps.
Dr Ubhi has a passion for helping those in society who are most in need. He has been involved in disaster relief work following the tsunami in Thailand and more recently, through the efforts of the charitable arm of the Children’s e-Hospital, has been involved in helping refugee children affected by the Syrian refugee crisis. His work has involved direct medical support to medical teams on the ground in disaster zones and also being politically proactive to help vulnerable children.
