Divisional Director Royal Primary Care
I trained in medicine at the University of Sheffield, graduating in 1999. I initially trained as a Surgeon and undertook an extended period of research on how cancers become resistant to chemotherapy drugs.
I left surgery in 2011 to pursue a different work | life balance. I have been working as a GP in the Derbyshire and Yorkshire region for several years. I am happy to see any problems but my areas of interest are gastrointestinal disease (tummy and bowel problems), central sensitivity syndromes (fibromyalgia, CFS), mens health and minor surgery. I also have an interest in app based connected health care.
As Divisional Director I am responsible and accountable for the redevelopment and improvement of Royal Primary Care across Chesterfield and Clay Cross. Presently this means I usually see patient on 2 days of the week and spend the rest of the week leading the redevelopment of Royal Primary Care.

I graduated from Sheffield medical school in 2006 and then completed my foundation and GP training in hospitals and GP practices around South Yorkshire. I joined Holywell Medical Group in 2013 and have been with the practice through the transition to Royal Primary Care.  I chose general practice as my speciality as I love the wide variety of medical problems that you get to see every day and the unique relationships that you build with patients. I am the lead GP for Riverdale care home which specialises in the care of patients with dementia. I am also a trained prescriber of opiate substitution therapy(methadone/subutex). I am also the Clinical Governance lead at the practice which involves reviewing NICE guidance to ensure our clinical practices are up to date and auditing our performance in different clinical areas to identify where clinical guidance needs changing or updating. My main areas of interest are women’s health and sexual health. I am a trained coil and implant fitter and can also fit ring pessaries. My aim is that all women should have awareness of and access to all contraceptive options

The experience gained in my previous roles can be very helpful when considering children who may be experiencing difficulties.
