Meet Dr Tim Ubhi

Hello and welcome to my Blog! I’m Dr Tim Ubhi (most of my patients call me “Dr Tim”) and I will be posting on topics such as common child health problems, medical politics and also some funny medical stories that I have encountered in my 25 years as a Children’s Doctor. These stories will fall under the category of “Diary of a Children’s Doctor”, as I’m sure you will totally understand, names and places have been changed to protect identity. Please leave a comment if you read one of my posts so that I know I’m not alone! I hope you enjoy my Blog!
