Clinical Experience

Dr Raina is a dedicated Consultant Neuro-developmental Paediatrician. He currently holds a prominent position at Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust, where his expertise spans the domains of cerebral palsy, neuro-rehabilitation, childhood epilepsy, brain injury, and children’s safeguarding. Additionally, Dr. Raina serves as an honorary paediatrician in the Paediatric Neurology Department at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, contributing his skills on an ad hoc basis.

Dr Raina leads one of the largest multi-disciplinary spasticity management services for children in the West Midlands. Within this role, he manages drug regimens and conducts Botox injections under ultrasound guidance. He also conducts initial assessments to determine a child’s suitability for intra-thecal baclofen pump and/or selective dorsal rhizotomy surgery.

Dr Raina completed the General Medical Council-approved higher specialist training in Paediatrics and Neonatology, including a comprehensive sub-specialist training in paediatric neurology and neuro-developmental paediatrics over a decade from 2003 to 2013.

During his three years of sub-specialist Registrar training, he immersed himself in acute paediatric neurology and neuro-rehabilitation, gaining invaluable exposure to childhood neurological conditions. His regular neuro-developmental clinics at child development centres allowed him to care for children with Autism, ADHD, Epilepsy, sleep disorders, and developmental challenges stemming from underlying neurometabolic or neurogenetic conditions.

Dr Raina’s once-a-week attendance at tertiary paediatric neurology clinics at Birmingham Children’s Hospital afforded him a deep understanding of managing complex neurological conditions. His in-patient experience further equipped him with the necessary skills to handle acute neurological conditions, including intractable epilepsy syndromes, pre-surgical evaluation for epilepsy surgery, intra-cranial hypertension, traumatic brain injuries, CNS infections/auto-immune conditions, and acute neuropathies.

Dr Raina has enrolled in the British Paediatric Neurology Association’s Distance Learning Neurology course, completing several modules, including the Epilepsy module.

Dr Raina has also undertaken specialised training through the Paediatric Epilepsy Training (PET) courses, providing him with a comprehensive understanding of epilepsy in children.
