Hello Dr Ohri! How long have you worked at Spire Murrayfield, Wirral and what is your previous background?
I've worked at Spire Murrayfield since 2018. I've worked (and still do) work as a GP on the Wirral, as well as covering some sessions in the GP extended access service. I also work at the University of Liverpool as a lecturer and clinical teacher.
What made you want to be a General Practitioner?
Medicine is a fantastic diverse career with endless opportunities. Being a doctor in itself is a privileged role. General Practice is particularly interesting because of the variety - you never know what you're going to be dealing with next. But this challenge offers unique job satisfaction.
What makes you proud to work at Spire Murrayfield, Wirral?
Spire Murrayfield is a friendly hospital which offers fantastic services for patients. The staff are lovely and I have been warmly welcomed to feel part of the team. This kind of work environment in turn, leads to a positive patient experience and I feel privileged to be part of this.
What does "Hello my name is..." mean to you?
A warm and friendly introduction allows the breakdown of barriers, especially where patients might be feeling understandably anxious about a medical problem that they have been experiencing. It is the first and most important step in creating a trusting relationship between a doctor and a patient.
And finally, what's your hidden talent?
Being the ultimate dress-a-holic!
