Following my graduation from Cardiff University, I worked in Kent before moving to Wimbledon. I have worked in Kingston Hospital, and completed my GP training in St George’s Hospital. I held a variety of hospital placements, including paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, and the fast-paced A&E. I found these created plenty of opportunities for learning and consolidating medical training prior to work within a GP setting.
I enjoy regular clinical work in local NHS GP surgeries in Merton and Wandsworth. For me, working as part of a friendly and supportive team is essential, and I am very proud to be part of the team here where my colleagues do their best to care for and look after the patients and staff.
Outside work, I enjoy creative and musical activities, particularly if they can be shared with my young son. As a family we are deeply involved with charity work (HCPT), caring for disabled children and adults in Lourdes. Looking forward to the New Year, I hope to take up ballroom dance classes again, to rekindle a hobby from a number of years ago.
