Dr Anne-Marie Childs


Anne-Marie has been working as a consultant paediatric neurologist at Leeds Teaching Hospitals trust since 2000.

She leads the service for children and young people with neuromuscular disorders, which is recognised as an MDUK centre of excellence and a DMD Hub site for research.  Many of the children and young people under her care are living with complex life limiting disorders and they and their families have received invaluable support and care from Martin House. Having worked with the team at Martin House in a clinical and research capacity over the years, Anne-Marie was delighted to become a medical trustee to support their on-going work and aims in a different capacity.
 
In her clinical work, Anne-Marie is committed to ensuring access to effective and compassionate care for all. She shares the values of the Martin House team and is looking forward to working with them and her fellow trustees in delivering the vision of palliative care for every child and young person where and when they need it.
