About Dr Christina Petropoulos (Practice Locum)

Dr Christina Petropoulos is a General Paediatrician at UCLH and sees patients privately with our Practice at the Portland Hospital. Whilst recently making a decision to step back from private practice to concentrate more on her NHS work, Christina continues to work with our Practice as a Locum.

She is very much a generalist, looking after children and young people for both routine child health surveillance and primary/secondary care problems from infancy through to adolescence.


Christina grew up in London and completed her medical training at St George’s Hospital Medical School qualifying in 1990. She completed the MSc in Community Child Health at the Institute of Child Health in 2002. Her postgraduate training was mostly in paediatrics at various London centres. As well her general professional training, Christina has spent specific time training in a range of specialties including emergency medicine, community paediatrics, neurology, neurodisability and epilepsy.

She has  been a Consultant Paediatrician since 2005 and currently work as a General Paediatrician with an interest in epilepsy at University College Hospital. Christina is also the Liaison Paediatrician for the Emergency Department and enjoys working in a unit that excels in adolescent health.


Her other main interest is medical education. Christina teaches on a number of simulation and resuscitation courses and mentors and supervises undergraduates and postgraduates. She was the Clinical Director for the Paediatric and Adolescent Department at UCLH for five years, until recently, but stood down in order to focus more on clinical care.


Christina is fluent in both English and Greek.
