Dr Jide Menakaya I am an experienced Consultant Paediatrician based in London and Middlesex. I was appointed a Consultant with an interest in new-born care after training positions in Wessex, West Midlands, and Australia but have also become the Lead Clinician for Paediatric Gastroenterology at Hillingdon Hospital and a Honorary Consultant Paediatrician in Paediatric Gastroenterology at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital London. I have considerable experience in the assessment and management of medical disorders affecting all children. In addition, I am well versed in the care of newly born babies and infants including those born prematurely and have specific expertise in the management of children with complex constipation and incontinence. As a paediatrician, I have seen first-hand the impact of constipation and continence issues on children and their families. I have designed, led, and implemented innovative clinical programmes for affected children and their families that build their self-confidence and help return them to full health as quickly as possible. As a long-standing admirer of ERIC’s work, I welcome the opportunity to contribute actively to the exceptional role it plays supporting children and their families. In my free time, I enjoy cycling, running, singing, and travelling. I am married and live in London with my wife and two children.
