Jo has been a Consultant Paediatrician at Treliske Hospital since October 2005. She previously worked and trained in Portsmouth and Hampshire. From late 2020, Jo has taken on a role in the newly formed Neurodevelopmental Pathway team, working alongside colleagues in the Early Help Hub and Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, enabling Children and Young people with complex neurodevelopmental needs to be triaged and assessed in a more joined up multiagency fashion. Jo provides regular new patient community paediatric appointments in Truro and Bodmin, ensuring that those children referred are then followed up in their localities as appropriate. Jo continues to have a role in autism assessment in younger children and is a member of the ASD Assessment team for the younger child.
Jo is somewhat surprised to find herself the most senior member of the team, and as such, will continue to support consultant and admin colleagues, and the Community paediatric caseload as required.
