Goyal, Sushma - consultant children's clinical neurophysiologist

Area of expertise: seizures and epilepsy in newborn babies and children.


Dr Sushma Goyal trained as a doctor in India. She came to London to train in clinical neurophysiology at King’s College Hospital, where her background in paediatrics and neurology helped her to become one of the very few children's clinical neurophysiologists in the country.

Currently a children's clinical neurophysiologist at Evelina London, Sushma enjoys being part of a dedicated team and dealing with challenging cases. Children with complex epilepsy and their families inspire her every day to research, innovate and provide a service that delivers excellent clinical care.
