    I am a consultant paediatrician with a special interest in neurology since 2000. I have also a special interest in medical education and I published eight books to help candidate preparing for MRCPCH exams run by RCPCH.

    I am also a director of clinical Pastest courses for 9 years and now I am the director of paediatric courses run by index paediatrics ltd. I also served as minister of health in Libya in 2011. I am currently working in four different private hospitals and seeing children with general paediatrics and neurological problems.

    I am interested in seeing children with epilepsy or general neurological problems or developmental delay. This is my area of expertise as well as general paediatrics.
