About

IMG_4257As well as being a GP, I am Mum to 3 young children, so life is fairly busy and hectic. In an attempt to keep sane, I run, embrace my inner yogi from time-to-time and consume medicinal quantities of wine.

I graduated from Medical School in 2002. I then spent a further five years working as a hospital doctor, gaining experience in a host of different specialities, including a spell working as an A&E doctor in Australia. I went on to complete my GP training, qualifying and becoming a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners in 2008. I now work part-time as a GP in a busy urban practice.

As much as I love my job, I often long for more than 10 minutes per patient. If only I had more time to discuss all the things we both want to chat about? So this is my solution. As you read, imagine you are sitting in your Doctor’s surgery – albeit with unlimited time, comfy chairs, a mug of tea and a lovely slab of cake! I’ve tried to put together bits and pieces about subjects which I get asked about all the time – and some less commonly! I really hope you find it of use and some interest.

In addition to the blog I also am a regular contributor to the award winning health information website Patient, as well as to leading medical publications GP magazine, MIMMS learning and Pulsegravatarfaded

Unfortunately for medico legal resons I am unable to comment on individual cases.
