I qualified from St Marys Hospital Medical School, having made the decision to study medicine at the age of 6.
I hold the Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners. After 27 years I have recently retired from my NHS practice but still do locum sessions so I am up to date with the most recent NHS pathways. My NHS background is invaluable to me in my private practice.
I pride myself on having a unique style with my patients. Any problem however small is important and it is by listening to my patients carefully, that I can pick up that vital piece of the history that can lead to a diagnosis.
A GP has to be a jack of all trades and realise when to refer on for further care. Over the years I have developed a wide personal network of specialists who are available at the end of the phone for advice.
Within general practice my special interests are diabetes, hypertension, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology and mental health.
I undergo rigorous annual appraisals to ensure I practice to the highest standards and this includes feedback from my peers as well as my patients. The testimonials are taken from recent appraisals.
I am the Primary Care representative on the Wellington Hospital Medical Advisory Committee and hold a corporate role with a large American corporation as their medical advisor and in house doctor.
I have a large international patient population, in particular from Nigeria, Ghana and the Middle East.
I am married with two children and live locally. Outside medicine my special interests are music and travel. I also speak and can consult in French.
