Mr John Bowen FRCS(Paed)The Specialist Children’s Surgeon Your Child Matters  


I am now pleased to be able to offer consultation, or Expert opinion, for children living in the Birmingham and Southampton areas.


Why see me for your child’s operation, second opinion, or instruct me as an Expert Witness?


My entire practice, within the NHS, is based at the new Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. I am devoted to the care of children from birth to their teenage years, who often suffer with a wide range of medical problems, and who might require an operation as part of their treatment.


It is said that children are not small adults. This is so very true. Their illnesses are different. The language they use and understand is different, and changes as they grow up. The operations they need can be different. I believe I speak their language, and understand their changing hopes, and fears, as they grow up.


I only treat Children and Young People.


As a Specialist Paediatric General Surgeon, the vast range of problems I see tend to be those problems that are not treated by my colleagues in other Specialities, for instance ENT, or Neuro-surgery or Orthopaedic Surgery etc. If you are not sure that I can help, please feel free to email me your enquiry and I will do my best to advise you.


I am delighted to offer you and your child private consultation at the new Manchester Spire Hospital in Didsbury, or the Spire, Hale, clinic. Appointments can be made directly with my PA Liz. It would help if you could ask your GP for a referral letter. Although this is not essential if you intend to pay yourself for your appointment, it is my practice to copy your GP any letters I send to you, as part of my commitment to safeguarding Children and Young People.


I would also be very happy to see you with your child in my Out-patient clinics at RMCH, Trafford General Hospital, and the Royal Bolton Hospital. You can contact me via Linda, my PA at RMCH.



I hope you find my website helpful in understanding what I do and deciding if I can help treat your child, or instructing me as your Expert Witness
