I am one of Primary Care Wirral’s founders and Medical Director.
I qualified from Liverpool University in 1990, and I have been a Wirral GP since 2008. Before establishing myself in Wirral, I worked for 9 years with P&O Cruises, after completing basic surgical training.
Currently, I combine my activities for PCW with my job as GP partner at Claughton Medical Centre (since 2013). Alongside this, I have additional roles as Lead GP in Adult Safeguarding for the Wirral CCG and as Appraiser and Clinical Investigator for NHS England.
My professional background also includes: Lead GP for Wirral Community Trust from 2013-2016 – managing the GP-OOH service – and Deputy Medical Director at the Countess of Chester Hospital from 2017-2019.
My clinical interests are Minor Surgery and Musculoskeletal Medicine, and alongside my medical training, I hold a Masters in Medical Law and Ethics, and post graduate qualifications in Sports and Exercise Medicine (2014), and Clinical Leadership (2015).
My involvement with PCW has been since its inception and I am dedicated to creating a vehicle for all Wirral GPs to be involved in developing the future of Primary Care in Wirral.
I am delighted with the progress made so far, and I look forward to supporting the development of the organisation and the achievement of its goals through a clear, transparent and inclusive manner.
Outside work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three kids – two girls and one boy – and I like sports of all kinds.
