I have been a GP in the Bradford area since 2004 with 8 years in Thornton and the rest based in Shipley. I grew up in Leicestershire and did my medical training in Leeds. I feel very lucky to work with colleagues who want to help each other and our patients and community. I spend Tuesdays and Wednesdays working in community based dermatology (skin clinics) and Mondays and Thursdays in general practice. I lead on long term conditions across Affinity Care with specialists in diabetes, cardiology and respiratory medicine, as well as dementia.

I refuse to deal with firearms certificate requests based on my conscientious objection

Favourite film A romantic comedy – prefer to avoid horror movies thankyou!

Hobby Mum to two daughters and two Labradors, anything outdoors….gardening, walking, a jog with the dog

Favourite food Thai

Favourite drink Coffee (with cake)

What one word would people use to describe you? Reliable

What do you like most about working in general practice? I love the variety and working with people who are kind and caring
