Joanne Crook started her career as a resident pharmacist at Guy’s and St Thomas Hospital London in 2002 and after spending time in paediatric rotations with the ever-inspirational Steve Tomlin and co, she knew this was the specialty for her!
During the following 16 years she has worked as Evelina Children’s Hospital, Great Ormond Street and spent 10 years at Chelsea Children’s Hospital at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, where she became an independent prescriber in paediatric inflammatory bowel disease, completed an MSC in Pharmacy Practice and was awarded an Honorary lecturer title for UCL school of Pharmacy.
In 2018, she joined King’s College Hospital as a Consultant Pharmacist for Paediatrics, where she specialises in children with complex needs, adherence and PICU. Kings College Hospital (KCH) is a tertiary paediatric centre and a quaternary centre for paediatric liver transplantation, who deliver high quality care to children with a large range of medical and social needs.
Joanne joined the NPPG organising committee in 2020 and is looking forwards to working with the executive to improve health outcomes for children.
