Anne-Marie Childs

Consultant Paediatric Neurologist

I have been working as a consultant paediatric neurologist in Leeds since 2001 when I became the Lead for Children’s Neuromuscular Services. It has been a pleasure working with the families and young people under our care and being part of the NM multidisciplinary team.

I am committed to delivering high-quality care to all CYP with NM disorders in Yorkshire and thus work closely with colleagues in other disciplines, with charities and the UK NM consortium. I am a member of the SMA working group and ethical committee.

My clinical research interests include MR imaging and rare disease phenotyping although my predominant research involvement is now in relation to DMD and SMA. I am PI for 6 trials in DMD and 4 upcoming studies. I am a member of the BPNA research committee and the Martin House Research Committee.
