LRCP MRCS MRCGP
Usually works Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays
I graduated from Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School in 1985. Following 4 years working as a junior doctor in a variety of specialities at The West Middlesex University Hospital in West London I entered General Practice, moving down to Barnstaple in 1993 to take up my current position. I enjoy all aspects of General Practice, my particular areas of interest being sports medicine, minor surgery, joint injection, migraine and psychological medicine. My wife works locally as a physiotherapist and we have 4 teenage children. My interests outside medicine include sport and fitness – I am a keen cyclist, and music – I try to play the piano and a selection of guitars when time permits.

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries.
The Secretaries deal with referrals from GPs and nurses on to secondary care and specialist services provided in the community. They also provide general typing duties, summarise new patient records as well as code records to keep them up to date.
A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
They can be contacted on 01271 384 092 or 01271 384 093.
