About : Mr Simon Clarke Paediatric Surgeon

Mr Clarke had specialist training as a paediatric and neonatal surgeon before taking up a laparoscopic fellowship in the Chinese university of Hong Kong where he worked as an associate Preofessor in the academic surgical department.

After completion of specialist training and a consultancy at Great Ormond Street Mr Clarke returned to work at Chelsea and Westminster and has been a consultant there for over 10 years and Department head for the past 3.

Childrens surgery encompasses all ages from premature infants up to 16 and in some case 18 years old. As paediatric surgeons we are trained to work in a wide range of areas from gastrointestinal to urology as well as thoracic or chest conditions. One of the most common questions i often get asked is how hard it must be to work with so many sick children. The honest answer is that its the best  and most rewarding job in the world.

"My patients are some of the most honest people you are ever likely to work with. If they dont like they tell you...and when you are doing it right they usually just run off and play. Its a very privileged job and i am lucky that in all the centres where I operate, I have the backing and support of incredible medical, nursing and theatre teams. Without them none of it would be possible."
