Paediatrics (children's doctor)
Dr Claudine De Munter is a French-speaking paediatrician and paediatric intensivist who trained in Belgium. For the past 17 years, she has worked in London as a consultant at St Mary's hospital Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and for the past 5 years at The Portland Hospital for Women and Children.
Her wide-ranging medical background and expertise allows her to offer extensive advice on all general paediatric conditions and treatments for any common respiratory, digestive, renal, skin, sleep, growth, behavioural disorders. Furthermore, immunisation can be given if required.
Upon moving to London, she took up the post of Retrieval Fellow and was responsible for bringing in sick children from all over England’s District General Hospitals, via ambulance or helicopter, to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit of St Mary's Hospital London.
Being familiar with the English, Belgian and French systems of care, she utilises her expansive understanding of these set-ups to apply a cultivated and holistic approach to her medical care. Dr De Munter is therefore well placed in aiding families to adjust to the English medical systems while still retaining some of the ideals from the continent.
She was made a Fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (FRCPCH) in 1998 and has been a consultant in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit since 1999. In addition, since 2006 she has developed clinical skills training for medical students and doctors utilising simulation technology.
Dr De Munter is known for building a rapport with her patients and recent completion of patient feedback forms at The Portland Hospital were incredibly complimentary, with all patients rating their consultation and care experience as very high.
Dr De Munter received an award from the Health Service in 2016 for the quality of her work (HSJ award).
