Dr Jo Jones, Consultant Pediatrician
Dr Jo Jones (BSc Hons, MBBS, MRCP, FRCPCH, Dip Pall Med) qualified in General Paediatrics with special interest in Community Paediatrics and Palliative Care, and has been working solely in Paediatrics since 1994. She is also highly trained in areas of Child Psychiatry. This means that she is extremely experienced and dually qualified to manage medical problems across the board, from asthma and abdominal pain to psychiatric conditions such as ADHD, Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Asperger’s Syndrome, emotional disorders and anxiety states. These were typical patients in Jo’s NHS clinics before she left to work independently in 2013.
In addition to the team at Core, Jo has an excellent ‘virtual team’ of colleagues at hand to signpost parents to, including child psychologists, counselling services and CBT practitioners, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dietitians and family therapists – all of whom specialise in working with children and young people. Jo knows all of these experts personally and can testify to their professional expertise and kindness towards families and children: this means that families are not left adrift and can look forward to a joined-up approach to their child’s wellbeing.
Jo has an excellent reputation amongst GPs and families and always tries to go the extra mile for families and children, so that they feel safe, informed and confident. She is recognised as an expert in communications skills, and parents, children and young people feel safe in her hands.
At Core, Jo offers joint assessments with Dr Nikki Mills for Autism Spectrum Conditions.
Jo is recognised by all private health insurance companies – a GP referral may be required which can be from your own GP, or we can arrange an appointment for you with one of our GPs.
“Thank you so much for your help with T; it’s like a breath of fresh air and we have already seen significant improvement with T with how he is including us all and taking time to maintain eye contact and conversations.” (Mother of 6 year old boy with likely autistic spectrum disorder but significant Attention Deficit Disorder, Worcestershire, November 2016)Back to our team
