I graduated from Leeds University in 1981. After training to be a GP I worked as a volunteer doctor in Mozambique for three years before joining the Practice in 1990. I'm interested in medical education. I have been a GP Trainer since 1998 and I am the Practice Lead in Diabetes.
Outside of work I enjoy fell walking, cycling and supporting Bradford City FC.

I qualified from Birmingham Medical School in 1989 and later did my GP Specialist training in the Airedale area. Between 1996 - 1999 I worked in a rural hospital in Zululand, South Africa before returning to the UK to work part-time as a GP in rural Lancashire and part-time with the University of Leeds Department of International Public Health, mostly on TB projects in Swiziland and Pakistan.
In 2004 I joined the team at Horton Park Surgery, becoming a Partner here in 2008 and until recently also worked part-time with the University of Leeds on undergraduate and postgraduate medical education. Together with Dr Harrison I help co-ordinate the medical student teaching at the Practice and together with Dr Iqbal I help run the joint injection clinic.
Outside work I recharge my batteries by walking my dog on the moors, cycling and gardening.

MBChB Cardiff 1980, MRCGP 1984, DRCOG 1984, FPCert 1984
I graduated from the Welsh National School of Medicine in 1980 and after GP training came to Bradford in 1984 and was a partner here until July 2017. I am now semi-retired and working part time in a salaried role. Although I have particular interests in respiratory medicine I believe a GP is nothing if not a generalist, and that continuity of care and understanding all aspects of a patient’s needs are core to our role.
I have been a member of the Local Medical Committee, the body which represents all GPs in Bradford and Airedale, for over 20 years and am a serving councillor on Bradford Metropolitan District Council. In 2016/17 I was honoured to be Deputy Lord Mayor of Bradford
Outside work I am a steward at my local Methodist Church and play rudimentary guitar and bass and can occasionally be found singing at local open mic nights. I took up running in 2013 and have now completed 5 marathons as well as many other events

MBChB Manchester 1982, MRCGP 1986, DRCOG 1986 FP Cert 1985
I have been a GP Partner at Horton Park Surgery for 28 years. I am also a
GP Trainer and GP Training Programme Director.
My clinical interests have changed over the years from Womens Health to Mental Health and more recently allergies. Like all generalists I have to keep up to date in all areas, especially as I am a teacher.
I went to Dhaka, Bangladesh on an exchange visit in 2006 and saw how Primary Care works/stuggles there and learnt lots from my experience.
I am currently supporting the Practice Health Champions and have joined the Walking For Health Group.
