Dr Edward Clode-Baker
General Practice (GP)
BSC Hons, MB ChB, FRCGP
Offering 30 minute face to face consultations at Spire Leicester Hospital really helps me understand what help patients need from a GP service and enables me to provide truly personalised care for them. With prompt, direct access to a wide range of diagnostic tests and specialist consultant advice, comprehensive care can be provided for my patients in a timely manner.
I qualified from Leicester University School of Medicine in 1996 and then completed basic surgical training before moving into General Practice in 2001. It has been a great privilege for me to be an NHS GP in Leicestershire for over twenty years in a variety of roles including GP partnership for twelve years, as a long term locum and now as a salaried GP. I have been involved in medical education throughout my career both with undergraduates and as a GP trainer. My area of special clinical interest is anticoagulation.
Outside of my clinical practice, I work as a Clinical Director for EMIS Health who develop software for patient records that is used in NHS primary care. Combining medicine and travel, I was fortunate to have a sabbatical at St George’s University, West Indies working in their Clinical Skills department in 2008 and was lucky enough to climb Mt Kilimanjaro, Tanzania in 2010 as expedition doctor.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Edward Clode-Baker at Spire include:
As a GP Dr Clode-Baker covers the whole range of medical specialties that present in the general population.

I am married and have one daughter. When not at work I crave the outdoors whether it be going for a long walk, gardening or snoozing in the hammock!
