My name is Dr Julia Thomson and I am a consultant paediatrician (pediatrician, children’s doctor) based in North London, UK offering private consultations at Spire Roding Hospital, Redbridge IG4 and Highgate Hospital, London N6. I am registered with BUPA, CIGNA, Aviva, SimplyHealthCare, Pru Health, WPA, WPA Protocol and AXA PPP and can also see self-funding families. It is not usually a problem to register with other insurance agencies if yours is not listed here.
I came to medicine late having done a degree in French and Philosophy initially and tried out a rather eclectic mix of jobs for a few years before realising the call to my traditional family vocation (there is at least one doctor in every generation of my family back to the beginning of the 19th century!) was too strong to resist any more. I trained at Southampton Medical School, qualifying as a doctor in 1997. I have been working in paediatrics since 1998 both in the Wessex health region and in north London. I am a general paediatrician which means I see any child from birth to their 16th birthday with just about any medical problem.
** PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE HAVE BEEN SOME CHANGES IN HOSPITALS’ REGULATIONS WHICH MEANS THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO SEE CHILDREN YOUNGER THAN 3 YEARS IN SOME HOSPITALS WITHIN THE PRIVATE SECTOR FOR THE TIME BEING. WE HOPE THIS IS A TEMPORARY SITUATION **
I will update this page as soon as I know when I can start seeing the under 3s again at Spire Roding Hospital. After October 1st 2016, Highgate Hospital will no longer be running a paediatric service.
I live in north London with my husband, 3 children, a varying number of goldfish and a cat.
