After spending a Year at GOSH in a consultant post, the opportunity arose to apply for a position at the Evelina Children’s Hospital, Newcomen/Neurosciences Department which is a tertiary service. She currently works in the Newcomen Neurodevelopmental second opinion service where the team gives diagnoses and recommendations in neurodevelopment, learning, complex medical needs and mental health.

Within her clinics, Dr Doyle prescribes medications where appropriate including in ADHD, sleep difficulties, epilepsy, cerebral Palsy/increased tone, Tourettes syndrome and mental health difficulties. A major proportion of her job is writing appropriate recommendations for schools and EHCPs (Education and Health Care plans) and helping families know how to support and build their child to reach their full potential.
