Dr Susan Hill is a Consultant Paediatric Gastroenterologist who has worked at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) for over 20 years. Her areas of expertise include management of acute and chronic undernutrition/malnutrition, intestinal failure assessment and rehabilitation and faltering growth and feeding difficulties.
Dr Hill runs a national and international intestinal failure service with shared care with the child’s most local hospital. The aim of the service is to wean children off parenteral nutrition (PN) at the earliest opportunity. If children have long-term intestinal failure that fails to respond to treatment the aim of the service is to enable children and their families to have the best possible quality of life (including attending school and family holidays) despite living with parenteral nutrition.
