I was born and bred in the Northwest and did my medical training at the University of Cambridge Medical School. After receiving my qualification in 1997, I undertook specialist paediatric training at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge and Great Ormond Street, London. As a member of The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (London, 2001), I widened my interests to the care of the family as a whole and ventured into General Practice closer to home, in Mersey Region. I have lived here since becoming a fully qualified GP in 2004 and work as an NHS GP in the Wirral.I am committed to ongoing medical education and I run a continuing professional development programme for fellow GPs. My interest in Women’s Health and wellbeing has been featured in publications such as The Times and The Daily Mail and I have spoken out about feminine health issues on Radio Merseyside and at medical conferences here in the UK and abroad, most recently at the 1st Well Woman Conference, Abu Dhabi.As a GP committed to holistic care of all patients and their families, I also have a particular interest in mental health issues and have benefited from 1 year affiliated with the Department of Psychology, Wirral University Teaching Hospital. I have practical experience in the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.I have extensive local knowledge and aim to deliver high quality, patient focused and evidence led patient care. I specialise in being a generalist with a commitment to caring for the whole person and responding to each individual’s needs.
