Doctor Stories:

Dr. Danielle Hall


Despite being the only girl to fail the school Religious Education exam in Year 7, Dani persevered in her academic studies graduating from Oxford and London Universities, and is fulfilling her dream job as a Paediatric Emergency Medicine Consultant at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital. When she isn’t busy making packed lunches or rushing her two monkeys between football and clarinet lessons she can usually be found in the Emergency Department or teaching undergraduate or postgraduate students (her other passion).  She has a particular interest in simulation training and is using this to form the bulk of her masters in medical education (when the kids actually let her near the laptop).
