Suhail Habib

Role within the CYP Alliance

I am CYP Clinical Lead for Epilepsy South Yorkshire & Bassetlaw. I am responsible for providing clinical leadership within the epilepsy workstream as part of the CYP transformation programme.

Why does it matter?

I'm a consultant paediatrician with a special interest in epilepsy, which is one of the most common chronic diseases affecting children. In most cases it is is a lifelong illness, so it's not only treating their symptoms, but supporting their day-to-day living.

My impact

I led South Yorkshire ICB and worked in collaboration with nine teams across the UK to successfully complete Epilepsy Quality Improvment Programme with RCPH. 

Something a bit different…

I am a 24/7 paediatrician, I look after my three boys! If I'm not working, you'll find me cycling around Doncaster with them.
