Dr Ravi Jayaram

Dr Ravi Jayaram is a Consultant Paediatrician at the Countess of Chester Hospital. He co-presents Channel 4's series Born Naughty? and appeared on ITV's This Morning discussing issues raised in the programme and answering viewers questions in a phone-in. Dr Ravi also recently presented a film for the One Show on BBC One on NHS staffing issues.

Having now worked in the NHS for over ten years, Ravi did his undergraduate training in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and trained in paediatrics in the north-east of England, Bristol, New South Wales and London. He deals with many aspects of child health but has a particular interest in asthma, cystic fibrosis and other childhood lung disorders as well as in behavioural paediatrics, medical education and care of critically ill children. He has been head of the paediatric department in his hospital for 6 years and so has been very involved in medical management and has extensive insight into broader issues around delivery of healthcare and the ever-changing structure of the NHS.

He has also been a contributor to the mid-morning show on the BBC Asian Network as a child health "guru". 

In his spare time, he does triathlons, sings with a band and is a member of The Weakest Link winners club.

Some feedback below, from a recent talk that Ravi gave;
The session was very well received indeed and the hall was packed. Ravi came across as a highly personable and confident presenter, with just the right balance of knowledge, insight and humour - he was very aware of where the audience was coming from and responded to questions with both wit and candour. It was a pleasure to get to know him a little during the build up to the conference and I would absolutely commend him to any other event.
