DR. KALOGIROU

I  am a graduate of  Aristotelion University’s (Greece ) medical school and  started my training in paediatrics in Cyprus initially , followed by 8 years of training in UK . 

During my time in UK I rotated around  four of London’s teaching hospitals : West Middlesex University Hospital , King’s College Hospital, Guy’s and St Thomas and Princess Royal University Hospital. Apart from my general paediatric training I have also trained  in the following fields : paediatric neurology ( 6 months)  , paediatric endocrinology( 6 months)  , paediatric intensive care ( 6 months)  and developmental paediatrics ( 6 months)  . I have also worked as a fellow in paediatric allergy at King’s college Hospital for a period of 2 months. In addition I have spent  18 months in King’s college hospital paediatric A&E department which is one of the largest in London and a major trauma centre. During my last year in the UK I was appointed as a locum consultant paediatrician at King’s college Hospital NHS Foundation trust.

 

In an era of increasing sub- specialization I see myself as a ‘’generalist’’ and take a broad and holistic approach towards my patients . I am registered with the GMC , I have a diploma in child's health from the Royal college of Physicians ( Ireland )  and I am a member of the Royal College of paediatrics - UK ( membership number 224680)  . I  have an up to date neonatal life support training certificate from the UK resuscitation council. 

 

I treat a wide range of paediatric problems but I have a particular interest in developmental paediatrics.  I am certified in Bayley scales III assessment tool .  I am  the clinical lead for  the screening program for early identification of developmental problems in children  , which is ran by the center for preventive paediatrics.
