Dr Neil Murray

Neil Alexander Murray MBChB MD MRCP MRCPCH

Neil was born, grew up, and went to university in his home town of Aberdeen, Scotland. After qualifying as a doctor in 1984 he moved to Coventry where he spent 2 years working in his first paediatric posts. He soon found out that looking after babies was where he felt most at home (mainly because they were the only ones who could understand his accent in those days!).

In 1986 Neil moved to London where he took up a post as SHO in Neonatal Medicine at The London Hospital (now The Royal London Hospital). Here, by coincidence, one of the first more senior doctors he worked with was Dr Andy Raffles – now the lead clinician of the Dr Ian Hay Ltd Practice. From 1987 Neil commenced training at registrar level in general paediatrics, paediatric neurology, paediatric cardiology and neonatal medicine at West Middlesex Hospital and subsequently at Westminster Children’s Hospital.

In 1990 Neil moved to The Hammersmith Hospital, an internationally renowned centre for Newborn Medicine and Neuro-Muscular Diseases, where he completed his junior doctor training and developed a research interest in the haematological problems of newborns. He published his MD thesis in 1995 and in 1997 (aged 35) he was appointed as Consultant in Neonatal Medicine. In 1999 he became Senior Lecturer/ Honorary Consultant in Neonatal Medicine at Imperial College London (Hammersmith Campus). Neil remained in this post for the next 9 years publishing many articles on the problem of thrombocytopenia (lack of blood platelets) in newborns, and co-authoring the chapter on Neonatal Haematology that appears in Roberton’s Textbook of Neonatology (the most widely recognised “bible” of neonatal care published in the UK).

Neil left The Hammersmith in 2008 to take up a part-time post as Consultant in Neonatal Medicine at The Homerton Hospital in Hackney (now the busiest neonatal unit in London). In addition, he began in private practice and is now one of the 4 consultants providing cover for The Portland Hospital Neonatal Unit.

Neil carries out healthy newborn baby checks at The Portland on behalf of the Dr Ian Hay Ltd Practice and as such provides excellent paediatric care until baby’s discharge home and a welcoming first introduction to the Practice.
