A Consultant General Paediatrician, with 26 years of Paediatric experience.

I have trained and worked in several busy London hospitals - to name a few, Great Ormond Street Childrens hospital, University College London Hospital, Northwick Park Hospital and Whipps Cross Hospital. I worked at The Royal London Hospital for 7 years as an Acute Consultant General Paediatrician. Prior to this, till March 2017. I have been the Clinical Lead in General Paediatrics for 1 year, as well as being the named doctor for Child protection for 7 years and also the shared care doctor for Paediatric Rheumatology for 3 years. I was also an Honorary Senior Paediatric lecturer at Queen Mary’s University of London. I also hold an Honorary Consultant Post at Great Ormond Street hospital, where I primarily am involved with the Paediatric Rheumatology team.​I actively teach, mentor, and participate in examining both medical students as well as postgraduate doctors.

My last NHS Consultant Paediatrician post was as a Consultant General Paediatrician at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore London. Here I look after children with neurodisabilities, pre and post operative complex spinal surgery medical issues, which need a Paediatrician to oversee their holistic care, children with bone tumours and children with skeletal and bone dysplasias. I also treat child with Rheumatological disorders and hyper mobility.I treat and holistically take care of patients before and after their surgery. I work with spinal and Orthopaedic Surgeons as well as General Paediatric Surgeons as the child’s named Paediatrician. I advocate for children who are non-verbal as part of this.

I am currently a Consultant Acute General Paediatrician at the Portland Hospital (HCA), the UKs largest, busiest private Children's Hospital. Here I do 5 clinics per week , cover the Urgent care centre on call( advice the junior doctors) and admit and care for acutely unwell children on the Paediatric Wards. I share care with the Paediatric Surgical Consultants, Paediatric Cardiologists and other Paediatric sub specialists who admit patients to the wards as well. I am a a senior consultant working in NHS111 as part of the Paediatric clinical assessment services.
  • Dr Fathima consulted us in regards to our 1-year son ongoing medical problems. He had a reflux and severe cow milk intolerance. He was not gaining weight and was at the bottom of the growth charts. My wife and I were impressed of how quickly and professionally she diagnosed our kid and recommended the right treatment for him. Moreover, she was very kind to us and our son, who, for the first time, enjoyed doctor’s visit. I wish all the paediatricians had the same approach when dealing with little patients. I would definitely recommend Dr Fathima to all parents looking for professional and ‘human’ treatment for their children.
  • I found Dr Fathima Mahomed to be a very caring and thorough doctor when she treated my 14 year old daughter. She took time to understand the full medical history and recommended a clear course of action. She was careful to arrange proper followup and to indicate how to contact her should symptoms change.
  • Dr Fatima Mahomed took my 6 months old baby under her supervision when he was admitted to hospital as he was having seizures. She was really caring, motherly and gave us the best treatment and led us to the right consultants to get the best treatment for our son. Once we left hospital with the baby, she was constantly on the phone to me to check in on our son and to advice us what to do. I have never had such great care and attention from a paediatrician. She also really comforts us and takes her time to explain to us and calm us down when we are really concerned. I highly recommend - She's the best.

We were so impressed by Dr. Mahomed that she has now become our family paediatrician for all of our three children. Dr Mahomed is extremely competent in diagnosing, testing and referring us to the appropriate expert consultants. She is incredibly dedicated to her patients and is prepared to work through the weekends and holidays at all times both in person and via texts, photos and phone conversations.

  • We are ever so grateful for Dr Mahomed's time and patience. The service was absolutely brilliant and i couldn't fault anything. She was able to give me time as the parent and break down all the information required, and make me feel comfortable.

A truly wonderful lady whom was welcoming, patient and very caring to any issues i raised which i feel is ever so important.

  • Dr. Mahomed is an exceptional physician dedicated to her work. Her intelligence and experience are evident upon meeting her. She skill-fully identifies the illness correctly and interacts with children and parents in the most compassionate way. Dr Mahomed went over and beyond her call of duty in that she helped us manage our I’ll baby by continuously calling and texting over the weekend and she even made a house visit during a snow storm to ensure our baby recovered from his critical condition. She is by far the most talented doctor we have ever met.
  • Dr Fathima is a fantastic expert. Not only she knows what she is doing but also she has this incredible warmyh towarda children. All her diagnosis and recommended treatments were spot on. What I also appreciate a lot, is that she makes herself available to respond to texts quickly which is great for first time mothers full of questions like myself.
  • I have only good things to say. She was very professional and warm putting Amber at ease. She was very clear with the diagnosis and we were so relieved to finally speak to someone who knew what was going on. I would certainly make sure we contact Dr Mahomed again should we need to.
  • Fathima is great. Both times I have been to see her with my now 3 month old daughter she has been thorough and informative. Fathima is very personable and makes me feel at ease even if I have lots to ask her. She is also lovely with Savannah which is so important as a new mum.
  • Dr Fathima Mahomed is an excellent doctor, kind and knowledgeable. In her assessment of the issue, she takes into account numerous parameters, and provide valuable advice, to ensure the best possible results are achieved in the short and long term.
  • When I met Dr Mahomed in November she immediately put me at ease with her manner and the fact that finally a Doctor was listening to my concerns. She was kind and gentle when examining J. Following the results that we received she followed up with several phone calls to check that we were dealing with the diagnosis ok as a family and has offered her ongoing support. I am very glad that I had a compassionate doctor delivering the results of J’s diagnosis to me.
  • Dr. Mahomed kindly saw my son at short notice at what was a very stressful time for our family as my son was quite unwell and had not been correctly diagnosed by our GP. She immediately put myself and my son at ease with her warm yet professional manner. She listened carefully to my concerns and was highly proficient in correctly diagnosing and treating my son. My son warmed to her immediately and was comfortable talking to her and allowing her to examine him. She is extremely empathetic with children and adults alike. We regard Dr. Mahomed highly and are so grateful to her. We are very lucky to have found her!

  • I brought A, my four-year-old in with an infection on Saturday. I am so impressed with your offering and delighted to meet Dr Fathima Mahomed. She is fantastic. I honestly thought this type of caring, accessible, prompt and professional care had disappeared. It reminded me of my paediatrician and pharmacist when I was growing up abroad. I have emailed my daughter's class parents about your medical service and will continue to tell all local families about your practice. Many thanks and best wishes, C.
  • Good morning Dr Mahomed, I want to personally thank you for the care and attentiveness provided to our daughter. You are very patient and know children (especially those who are young) need more time to build trust. You were able to do this with ease. Not only that, your experience showed when narrowing down her condition and providing a solution (this also includes referrals to specialists). This the first time we have chosen to go private and initially had 5 names to choose from. We checked reviews and couldn’t agree more with your previous patients. You are an amazing pediatrician and truly glad we chose you. Your service and care is nothing short of 5-star and definitely recommend you to anyone who needs a brilliant and trustworthy paediatrician.
  • Dr Mahomed has an excellent manner with children and is very kind and knowledgeable.
  • Dr Fathima pays attention and made my daughter loosen up and get comfortable sharing her concerns with her. she talked not only on the physical ailments we went to see her about but also discussed psychological reasons and made recommendations. she is very personable
  • Dr Fathima Mahomed is a lovely Consultant who instantly put my daughter H at ease and restored her confidence in the Medical Professionals. H says ’She likes to go and see Dr Fathima,even though she gets me to have blood tests’. As parents we have been very impressed with Dr Fathima, she diagnosed Hannah with a condition that had previously been missed. She is very approachable and when we needed to see her as H was quite poorly an appointment was found for the next day.
  • Dr Fathima Mahomed has recently treated my 11 year old daughter for bedwetting. In 6 weeks she has achieved more than we have managed in the 9 years we have been trying to get her dry at night! Finally we have found someone that has taken the problem seriously and has been able to come up with solutions that work.
  • Dr Fathima has taken perfect care of our little one. We went to her when my daughter was 9 months with eczema, eye infection, high fever and Cows milk intolerance and she was suffering a lot. She diagnosed all the issues pronto and my child had a speedy recovery. Have been going to her since then for any concerning issue and would highly recommend her.
  • I can't recommend Dr Mahomed highly enough. She is an outstanding doctor, unlike any other paediatrician I have ever come across before, incredibly professional, knowledgeable and accurate, as well as having a natural way with babies (my baby daughter absolutely loves her!). Dr Mahomed combines deep medical knowledge, with a strong sense of observation (which is so crucial, especially when it comes to babies), and great empathy for parents too. My husband and I first came across Dr Mahomed following a very stressful misdiagnose by another doctor, when our daughter was about 2 months old - she was calm, assertive and accurate, and has continued to see our daughter since, helping us greatly in various occasions. We have recommended doctor Fathima Mahomed to several friends, all of whom were very happy and impressed.
  • We met with Dr Mahomed at the Portland with our son. She was very patient and kind and listened to my concerns. She had to deliver some life changing news but did this with compassion. She has since been at the end of an email for me whenever I have needed her.
  • My teenage daughter came to Dr Mahomed in a lot of pain and quite distressed. Dr Mahomed was the first consultant who actually spoke to her maturely and treated her with kindness and honesty. She comforted her and was able to relate to what she was going through. Dr Mahomed is a confident and competent paediatrician and I would highly recommend her.
  • We live abroad but whenever we come to london we make every effort to see Dr Fathima. See is very experienced and knowledgeable but more importantly her advice is always practical.
  • Our 2.5 years old daughter had severe constipation with cold, cough and fever. We went to GP at least 4 times before seeing Dr. Fathima Mahomed. It wasn't useful to see the GP. Our little suffered every day and she was in pain all day. Finally, we pushed hard on GP to refer us to the Paediatrician. We were lucky to choose Dr. Fathima. She was fantastic. Dr. Fathima identified the problem within minutes and suggested necessary treatment. Within 4-6 hours our daughter's problem was sorted. Dr. Fathima is very patient and heard all our concerns. She assured us about the treatment and provided us with all the information. Also, gave us nutritional advice. She is extremly knowledge and friendly with the kids. We are grateful to have her as our Doctor. We will keep as our go-to paediatrician in future.
  • Dr Mahomed was absolutely fantastic with my daughter. She has a wonderful 'bedside manner' which put my nervous daughter at ease immediately.

  • I have been looking for a Doctor like Dr. Mahomed for some time now and so glad I found her. Not only is she so gentle with my little girl, but her knowledge and treatment have been top notch. The energy she has around her is fabulous and I could not recommend her again. Patient, capable, wonderful and has the right approach to kids.
  • Dr Fathima has been treating my daughter for constipation and vulvovaginitis. My daughter had an ongoing problems in her private parts and has been previously missdiagnosed by our GP. Dr Fathima was excellent. She helped my daughter to get better very quickly. It can be really hard for a little girl to talk about problems in their private areas, but Dr Fatima made my daughter feel confortable. I am forever grateful to Dr Fathima for helping my little girl.
  • Dr. Fathima has been an amazing Paediatrician for our son. Very professional, intelligent and responsive. Always made us feel like he was in the best hands. We appreciate her service.
  • Dr. Mahomed is the best. I am so happy we found her. When my daughter was 4 months old she developed a serious respiratory infection. Being a new mom and fairly new to the country I was super fortunate to have had Dr. Mahomed. She diagnosed her promptly, treated her, and checked up often. I've never experienced this level of care. In addition to being an incredible doctor her bedside manner is fantastic, she is so sweet with my daughter and patient with me (a crazy new mom). I highly recommend her.
  • We met Dr Fathima for my daughter who had a bad cough & chest infection. The level of care, attention to detail and follow up checks was superb. My daughter wasn’t easy to deal with when taking tests, and the doctor was gentle and reassuring at the same time. I would certainly choose to see Dr Fathima again should my child need medical care in future
  • We, Dr. Mahomed, to be very empathetic, professional and friendly who dealt with the problem very effectively.

  • She was amazing, patient and very helpful.understood my sons needs and continue to assist my son by getting relevant practitioners to help.
  • Dr Mahomed was wonderful with my son. She was thorough, professional, personable and delightful.
  • Dr Fathima was able to diagnose our son and devise an effective treatment for it in one appointment. Before, we had been receiving wrong diagnosis from the GP, which ended up aggravating our son’s condition. We cannot thank her enough also for her availability to reply our emails (sometimes very late) at those critical times when we are unsure on how to deal with symptoms.
  • Ever since our arrival in London we have been in a desperate search of a qualified and reliable paediatrician to take care of our kids. Being in a new environment and country, we feel very lucky to have met Dr. Fatima Mahomed in Portland Hospital who has become not only our family doctor but also best friend to our children. Seeing her for periodic check-ups is something what always triggers a smile on the face of our kids, as they know they are visiting a place where they would be welcomed, listened to and treated in the best way possible. Apart from being a real professional whose diagnoses and treatment plans have proven true and healing, Dr. Fatima has authentic ability to understand and share the feelings of others through which she connects with people and makes one feel heard, relaxed and being taken care of. This is truly something unique and we feel very lucky to have met Dr. Fatima and will hopefully continue seeing her throughout our stay in UK.
  • Dr Mahomed thoroughly examined our daughter, explained in detail what the problem was and how to deal with it, including precautionary steps we could take. She also followed up with us for her progress after initial appointment. We are very happy with her approach and would like to continue to have her follow our daughter going forward.
  • Dr Mahomed has been brilliant with both of our children and I could not recommend her more highly.In both cases, our children have been extremely well looked-after, which has been very reassuring for us as the parents.At the same time, the children feel very comfortable with her and she really makes an effort to explain everything and build a good rapport with them.
  • My daughter was very “inspired” by Dr Mahomed. Dr Mahomed had first had experience of various issues which my daughter was grappling with and therefore the advise she had to give was listened to intently. My daughter had at last an explanation for some of the issues she had been dealing with and some practical advise about how to feel better. Her medication will take a while to work but we look forward to seeing Dr Mahomed in February when I hope my daughter will be feeling much better. My daughter will soon turn 18 and I fear we will struggle to find her replacement !!
  • Dr Mohamed has been excellent with my son. We are very happy we were recommended her after our son continued to have a number of different health issues. She was friendly and made our son feel relaxed and comfortable from the first time we saw her. She took great care in listening and understanding the problem. Her medical explanations were clear and treatment plans have been very effective. We wish we would have met Dr Mahomed earlier!
  • We are delighted with the care Dr Mahomed has shown our 18 month old daughter. Dr Mahomed has helped our daughter in various ways since we started seeing her. She has given very useful tips about our daughter's diet, which has helped her constipation. She understood from looking at our daughter that she may have anaemia, which was confirmed by an iron test. Since starting iron supplements our daughter has seemed much more healthy, so we are very grateful to her for raising this. Dr Mahomed is also very responsive. Our daughter had terrible stomach pain one night which really frightened us. Dr Mahomed responded right away to our email and put us completely at ease. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to other parents, and we will continue to use her as our paediatrician.
  • Consulted Dr Mahomed in her capacity as a general Paediatrician at The Portland Hospital for my DD age 11, suffering from laryngitis and a longstanding stomach pain. She quickly and methodically discerned the symptoms as presenting due to two different causes and went on to prescribe appropriate remedial action to be taken as well as medication. The remedial approach worked well for my daughter.Most pleasant bedside manner and knows how to handle her younger patients. Takes time to give advice, actively listens to the patient (and not just the parent), explains and ensures patient feels comfortable about the approach adopted.Booking process was easy (via The Portland's booking desk) and a suitable slot was offered. GDPR-compliant comms follow fairly quickly after the consultation and a rectification was equally quickly acted upon. Initial consultation was GBP250 and the follow-up was, less usual, priced the same. Clinic easy to reach and consultation hours extend to after school hours and full working week.
  • Dr Fathima is an angel. She helped us numerous times when in crisis (including our late nights emails). She is reliable, knowledgeable and amazing with kids. Our son loves her, she makes him smile and at ease. Her advice is on the spot and always works fast. We are blessed to have her as a paediatrician.
  • TR consulted with Dr Fathima Mahomed and she was thorough and efficient. We were very pleased and impressed. I would recommend her and would definitely see her again.
  • Warm, thorough and excellent service every time.
