MBChB MRCGP MD
I qualified from the University of Bristol in 1994 and did most of my hospital training in the Bristol and Somerset area. I also spent a year working as a medical officer in a rural hospital in South Africa. I did my GP registrar training at Air Balloon Surgery in Bristol. From 2001 to November 2010 I was a partner at the Wellspring Surgery in Bristol. As well as being a practicing GP, I also work in a number of roles involved in medical research and healthcare commissioning. I am interested in all aspects of family medicine, but I have a particular interest in the prevention of heart disease and strokes. Most of my spare time is taken up involved with my family and in particular my children's activities. However, when I get a moment, I like to play the bass guitar and take photos.

I have a particular interest in medical education and am involved with the Bristol university medical school cased based learning sessions. In the future I would like to become a trainer in the GPVTS. I enjoy staying active in the gym and pool, as well as exploring the outdoors with my wife- both on feet and bike.

I qualified in medicine in 1992 at the University of Manchester and completed my training in general practice at St Mary's Hospital in London in 1998. For over two decades I was a GP Partner at the Willow Surgery, now part of the Downend Health Group. I also work at the CCG in the development of stroke services. I am interested in all aspects of primary care but have a particular interest in the care of stroke, hyperlipidaemia and the prevention of cardiovascular disease. I enjoy music, especially jazz, and play the saxophone and piano (to a very modest degree). I also relax by cooking, reading and house renovation. It has been a pleasure looking after my children over the years although one has now "flown the nest". I like to keep abreast of technology, and value the contact of friends.
