Simon Robertson

I am a general paediatrician who is keen to provide high quality holistic care for the children of Cornwall as they come into contact with the in-patient and out-patient areas of the children’s departments. I try to be friendly and approachable, so please ask me if you need help. I run the Isles of Scilly paediatric clinic, a general paediatric clinic in Truro and the diabetes clinics in Bodmin, St Austell and Truro.

I jointly provide the medical care for the 200 young people with diabetes in Cornwall. I have helped to shape this department during the introduction of carbohydrate counting, tighter blood glucose control and insulin pump therapy. During this time the best practice tariff has transformed the outlook for children’s diabetes services here and around the country.

I am part of the medical team providing care for children and young people with Cystic Fibrosis.

I help in the training of both medical students from the University of Exeter, and junior doctors, so may approach you during clinics or in-patient stays to ask if you would mind helping in the training process for the children’s doctors of the future.
