If you are asked to attend RNOH Private Care outpatient centre for your appointment, please ensure that you read the information below and follow any social distancing instructions when you arrive at the hospital:

Over the next 18 years she became Regional Advisor for Oxford Deanery, Undergraduate Tutor, Clinical Director and continued her work as a Paediatric Endocrinologist.

In September 2015 Zilla moved to become the Director of Children's Services at RNOH and hopes to develop an Endocrine service around metabolic bone disease and disorders of growth, as well as promoting excellence in the care of children throughout the Trust.
