Dr Gopinath Rao graduated from Chennai, India. He trained in paediatrics and specialised in neonatal medicine in the UK between 2003 and 2014, where he was a Consultant at Hammersmith hospital and St Mary’s hospital in London.
During his time at a tertiary referral centre in his hometown, Chennai, he improved paediatric and neonatal services and has experience in managing preterm babies as early as 24 weeks. He has a particular interest in helping new mothers and babies with breast feeding issues and is also qualified in managing paediatric nutritional problems.
Dr Gopinath Rao is passionate about teamwork and is very pleased to be a part of the paediatric team here in Guernsey.
As a dad himself, he strongly believes that paediatrics is not just about helping ill children, but also supporting families during such difficult times. He actively encourages families to be part of the decision-making process in their child’s care and feels that it always helps to have good communication between families and health care professionals to achieve best outcomes.
Dr Gopinath Rao loves running. Having run a few half marathons, he is excited about the outdoor lifestyle in Guernsey.
