I am a half time GP with wide experience of all aspects of a busy practice. In the last few years I have undertaken a lot of teaching and lecturing including setting up a new course for community matrons. To support this I recently completed a diploma in education.
My children are 14 and 16 and (mostly) a pleasure to be with. I love the river and plan to do the Devizes to Westminster canoe race next year.
As the founder member of a book club I read reasonably widely.
In the holidays I enjoy travelling. I have back-packed around India and learnt to dive last Christmas.
