Dr Charlotte Huddy
Charlotte was born and grew up in London. After school, she trained in medicine at St Thomas’s Hospital Medical School on the South Bank. After house jobs, Charlotte spent a year training in obstetrics and gynaecology before going to Southampton as a neonatal junior doctor. She decided then that she wanted to continue to care for babies and trained as a paediatrician in London. Her specialist neonatal training was at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford where she obtained ‘Completion of Specialist Training’.
Charlotte moved to the Midlands with her husband’s work (engineer) and spent a year in Sheffield in paediatric intensive care. She was then appointed as Consultant Neonatologist at Leicester University Hospitals where she worked part-time as their children were small. Charlotte moved back to London in 2007 and was appointed Consultant Neonatologist at St Georges in 2008. She has a special interest in developmental follow-up and recently completed an MSc in Epidemiology from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine done by distance learning. Charlotte has worked as the London Co-Lead for neonatal mortality for the last year and also has a role in looking after Foundation Doctors at St Georges. She has also held leadership positions within the directorate and Trust.
Outside work Charlotte enjoys tennis, reading and likes to go to Cornwall on holiday.
