Dr Gaurav Atreja MD, DCH, FRCPCH
Consultant Neonatologist, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust
Dr Atreja did his initial training and education in India. After completing his postgraduate training in Paediatrics from reputed institutes in India, he moved to the UK in 2004. He has trained and worked in some of the most reputed hospitals in London before being accredited as a specialist in neonatal medicine and paediatrics.
He has extensive experience in Paediatrics and neonatal medicine. He is a consultant neonatal paediatrician and is currently working at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. As a part of a dedicated neonatal service, he facilitated the first ever reported successful neonatal organ donation in the UK at Queen Charlottes and Chelsea hospital, London.
With recent advances in neonatal care, outcomes have improved. This has also meant increased workload and a higher incidence of medico-legal issues. Many aspects of neonatal care are still not evidence based which leads to confusion and ambiguity. He strives to work towards developing and supporting evidence base in neonatal care to further minimize risk.
He is passionate about the quality of neonatal care and is always working towards improving it. Having originally trained in India, he is committed to improving the new-born care in India and rest of the world.
