Specialises in

I studied and trained in Belfast and completed my GP training in Portsmouth in 1992.

I was a GP partner in the Portsmouth area for nearly 30 years and am currently working at 111 where I advise patients and paramedics.

I also work as a panel member representing South East Hants on the Independent Funding Review Panel, as well as continuing in my role as a Consultant Medical Examiner at Queen Alexandra Hospital.

I have previously trained in alternative medicines such as Acupuncture, Homeopathy and Hypnotherapy.
