Dr Battersby is a Clinical Senior Lecturer at the Neonatal Data Analysis Unit, Section of Academic Neonatal Medicine, and Honorary Consultant Neonatologist at Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust. Her research interests centre on using population data captured as part of routine care - to help address questions that are difficult to answer with more conventional methods. Her PhD focused on the epidemiology of Necrotising Enterocolitis and she led the UK Neonatal Collaborative-Necrotising Enterocolitis Study. Her other interests include improving newborn care in low resource settings, cardiology and haemodynamics. Cheryl read Medicine at the University of Nottingham, graduating in 2003 (BMedSci first class, BMBS). She undertook paediatric training in London, gaining membership of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health in 2006 and completed subspecialty training in Neonatal Medicine in 2018.
