I enjoy all aspects of general medicine within General practice and enjoy putting the general medical training I undertook for 4 years around the West Midlands, before opting to do General practice, to good use.
I trained in General practice in Bristol and Somerset but returned to the Midlands to take up a post as an Academic Registrar and later Clinical lecturer in Community Based Medicine at Birmingham University.
I work 8 sessions (4 days) per week in General practice. I have a particular interest in Dermatology having also undertaken some additional training in this speciality.
I am a GP Trainer and enjoy teaching and training GP Registrars at York House Medical Centre. I also teach medical students having introduced Undergraduate teaching to York House Medical Centre in 1992.
I continue to work 2 sessions per week at Birmingham University as a Deputy Head of Academy for Community Based Medicine where I am involved in helping other GPs deliver the nationally highly rated Community Based medicine (GP) teaching that Birmingham University medical students receive. I am also interested in providing help and mentoring for other doctors.
