Areas of expertise
Clinical Practice & Experience
Since 2008, Miss Lesley Watson has enjoyed working as a full-time Consultant in Emergency Medicine at the Wythenshawe Hospital where she delivers rapid assessment, treatment and rehabilitation to adults and children with major/life-threatening illnesses/injuries. Miss Watson is particularly special as she has a dual qualification in general and paediatric emergency medicine. She enjoys her role as Safeguarding Lead for adults and children within the Emergency Department, and has a special interest in the management of mental health patients, particularly by the application of the Mental Capacity Act. Miss Watson has expertise in the recognition and management of the acute setting for the conditions listed under her “Areas of expertise”, and undertakes procedures on adults and children requiring conscious sedation.
In addition to treating adults and children with major/life-threatening illnesses/injuries, Miss Watson spends a significant amount of her time supervising and assisting more junior clinicians with their patients, guiding them with the more challenging diagnostic dilemmas. Miss Watson has a particular clinical interest in rapid assessment so much so she introduced the process of rapid assessment to the Wythenshawe Hospital which ensures that time critical conditions are identified and treatment initiated, as soon as possible, as well as providing early imaging, investigation and analgesia.
