Welcome to the Website of Dr Howard Chilton, Neonatal Paediatrician
Dr Howard Chilton, based at Prince of Wales Private Hospital and Royal Hospital for Women, is one of Australia's leading baby doctors, with over 30 years experience as a neonatologist.
He was Director of Newborn Care at Sydney's Women's Hospital for over 20 years following his training in Oxford, London and the USA. He resigned in 1999 to concentrate on clinical work.
