Biography

Dr Colin Black was born in Derry City but has lived in Dublin since the age of 3, so has long since traded his calming northwestern lilt for a posh South Dublin accent. Colin is a Consultant Paediatric Anaesthesiologist with a special interest in anaesthesia for congenital heart disease, and has worked in hospitals across Ireland, following a period of 'finding himself’ in Australia. His anaesthesia finishing school was the esteemed Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in central London.

Now based at Children's Health Ireland at Crumlin, Colin lives in Dublin with his wife, who also happens to be a surgeon, and their young daughter, whom they hope does not become a doctor too.
