Katherine Lewis, Paediatric Advanced Nurse Practitioner

I completed my MSc is Advanced Paediatric Clinical Practice in 2017, under the wonderful clinical supervision of Dr M Coren.

I have worked at St John and St Elizabeth’s for over 12 years and love the ethos both the hospital and the paediatric team adhere to.

I see children for minor injury and illness in both the Outpatient and Urgent Care Centre settings. I offer individualised immunisation schedules for overseas families or simply extra protection over and above what the NHS provides.I work with a lot of children who have developed profound needle phobias. I can happily say I have successfully helped many children and young adolescents overcome their fears and initiate coping strategies for interventional procedures.

Looking forward to meeting you!


“Thank you for everything Dr Muller”

Our Appointments Team have a dedicated and caring approach to finding you the earliest appointment possible with the best specialist.

 If you are self-paying you don’t need a referral from your GP for a consultation. You can simply refer yourself* and book an appointment.

If you have medical insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa PPP, Aviva), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation for any treatment and, in most cases, you will require a referral letter from your GP.

If you do not have a GP, then we have an in-house private GP practice that you can use. Alternatively we can suggest the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstance.

*Please note – for investigations such as X-rays and MRI’s a referral will be required. However, we may be able to arrange this for you through our on-site private GP.
