Independent review of maternity services at

Dr Julian Sandell (Until March 2021)

I trained in London and have now been a consultant in Paediatric Emergency Medicine since 2003. My knowledge and experience is in both General Paediatrics and Paediatric Emergency Medicine. Since 2004 I have been a paediatric clinical lead for Emergency Medicine, Ambulatory Paediatrics and paediatric High Dependency Care. 

My publications include articles in the Lancet, the Journal of Pre-hospital and Disaster Medicine, Paediatrics and Child Health, Trauma, the EMJ and the BMJ, I have written postgraduate chapters on “Paediatric Emergency Medicine” and the “Prehospital Management of the Paediatric Patient” published by Oxford University Press and BMJ Publications respectively, I am actively involved in the design and use of Paediatric Early Warning Scores, having designed the COAST score (the Children’s 

Observation And Severity Tool), I have spoken regularly at medical conferences both in the UK and internationally, I instruct and direct Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) Courses, I contributed to the Department of Health DVD project “Spotting The Sick Child” and also co-authored the Joint Royal College’s Ambulance Liaison Committee’s (JRCALC) 2006 and 2013 Paediatric Guidelines for the UK Ambulance Service. Additionally I have an interest in the field of Prehospital Paediatrics and, through my ongoing involvement with the UK’s Ambulance Service, designed and developed the SandellTape Emergency Paediatric Chart in 2007, detailing prehospital paediatric resuscitation and emergency care practices. This product was endorsed by JRCALC and was commercially available. 

As well as RCPCH (Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health) commitments with JRCALC, I am on the Intercollegiate Committee for Standards for Children and Young People in Emergency Settings and a number of other national working groups.
