Having qualified from St George’s in 1987 I spent eight years in the British Army. After a year in psychiatry I worked part-time as a GP and part-time outside medicine for three years until 1999 when I became a full-time partner in a large general practice in Slough.

I have been a GP Trainer since 2004, served as a PEC Chair, and in 2009 was fortunate enough to become a CDU Coach, join the Oxford Deanery team of tutors on the New Trainers’ Course and be appointed as the Associate GP Dean for East Berkshire.
