Professional profile

I completed my medical training at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. Following qualification, I completed all of my junior doctor and GP specialty training in gospitals and GP surgeries around the North East of England, which affords me a great understanding of health services in the area. I have also worked in Canada which helped to broaden my skills as a GP.

Prior to studying medicine, I completed a degree in Sports Science and Health from Dublin City University. My knowledge and understanding of the impact of our lifestyle choices on general health means that I have a very holistic approach to healthcare and truly believe in the value of lifestyle change as, at the very least, an adjunct to more traditional therapies for many conditions.

I currently divide my time between my salaried work as a GP in Gateshead, my work in a walk-in centre, and providing private GP services at Spire Washington.

I enjoy all aspects of General Practice, but have a special interest in mental health and dermatology.
