Senior Partner.   Special Interests: High quality General practice. Undergraduate student teaching and post-graduate GP training.I can speak French, Sorani Kurdish and conversational German.

Notes: I trained in Bristol and have been a GP Partner at Wellspring since 1998. I really appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the health of the Barton Hill community and have got to know many families well over the years.
Wellspring is now a well reputed Training practice and Wellspring patients have been incredibly supportive in helping us to train students and junior doctors in General practice. I work at wellspring 4 days a week and at Bristol University every Tuesday.

Special interests: Women’s health and contraception, ENT.
Notes: I worked in other inner city Bristol practices, as well as at HMP Bristol , before joining Wellspring in 2010. I also work at the university as 3D ( disadvantage, disability

and diversity ) lead, which gives me plenty of opportunities for getting medical students involved in the local community. I am one of the advice and guidance GPs for ENT for Bristol inner city and East GPs. I am very interested in community issues, and am a trustee of Wellspring healthy living centre. I am also a volunteer coordinator and host for Bristol Hospitality Network providing homes for destitute asylum seekers. Outside of work I enjoy outdoor swimming, and growing vegetables on my allotment.

Special Interests: Diet, exercise, diabetes and complementary therapies.

Notes: I was raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I trained in medicine in Oxford, London, Yorkshire and Glasgow before pitching up in Bristol in 2000. As a GP my goal is to help people find the resources they need to  get well, to stay well and, if that is not possible, to learn to live well with existing conditions.

I work half time at Wellspring and in the other half of my week I organise the teaching of medical students in the University of Bristol. We are hugely appreciative of the various ways in which our patients participate in this training. My Wellspring week always includes Wednesdays.

When I am not working with patients and students I love working with plants on my sunny allotment. I feel lucky to serve such a diverse and interesting community in the Barton Hill area and to live in a forward-thinking city such as Bristol.
