I am passionate about providing a personalised approach for each of my patients. I believe that by putting the patient at the heart of the consultation we can start work towards their unique tailored goals.
Main medical interests:
I have a keen interest in Women’s health including menopause care, mental health, children's health and dermatology.
I completed my medical training at the University of Manchester in 2011 and qualified as a general practitioner in 2018. I moved to the north east after my GP training where I currently work in a large NHS practice along side my private work.
Currently working four sessions a week doing NHS GP work and one session a week as a private menopause Doctor. I am a diplomate of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist's (DRCOG) from April 2019, a member of the British menopause society through which I attend regular up date courses and conferences.
Personal treatment philosophy
I aim to provide a warm and holistic approach to all my patients. I keep myself up dated on the latest treatment approaches and always keep the patient as the individual in mind.
Why did you choose to be a GP?
As a GP, we are in a rare and valuable position to oversee all aspects of our patients health care and in turn I think this makes us much more effective at seeing the bigger picture and not just treat each disease in turn.
What makes a ‘good day’ at the office ‘for you’?
A rewarding day would be following up a patient and seeing that the treatment or lifestyle interventions we offered had made a big difference to the quality of their life.
What piece of advice do you most often give to your patients?
A balanced lifestyle is the key to maintaining health through the ages and how this is put into practice will be unique for each individual patient.
