MBChB, DFSRH, MRCGP
I was born in Rochford, Essex and lived my young years between England and Baghdad in Iraq. I completed my undergraduate medical training at the College of Medicine (Al-Mustansiriya University) in Baghdad and passed my final MBChB exams there. I was awarded my Medical Degree (MBChB) in June 1995 and soon after my graduation I decided to come back to settle down in the UK and have been here for over 20 years.
I have a wide range of experience in most aspects of General Practice including: general women’s problems, child health and paediatrics, stress and anxiety, skin complaints like eczema, acne and allergy, bowel problems, urinary problems, blood pressure, concerns about cholesterol, earache, sore throat and cough, joint pains and general aches and pains.
My initial experience of a hospital in the UK was at St George’s Hospital in London, where I completed a clinical attachment in A&E. I went on to do my exams and started my training as a House Officer in Surgery at Diana Princess of Wales Hospital in Lincolnshire. I then went on to do my House Officer post in General Medicine at Colchester General Hospital.

This was followed by my GP registrar training as part of the London Deanery training programme in Petersfield surgery in Romford, Essex, for one year to qualify as a GP in 2005. Since then I have worked in various local surgeries as a locum or salaried doctor.
I undertake regular courses including: annual appraisals, regular attendance to GP refresher courses at Southend Hospital or in GP update or hot topics in London, annual update of my CPR certificate for BLS, Basic Life Support, regular update of safeguarding children up to level 3.
