Since graduating from University College London Medical School, I completed my GP training in Bristol. I have worked in several GP practices across Bristol and North Somerset including the prison service, Out of Hours and Student Health. As well as my GP role at Northville Family Practice I also am involved in teaching 2nd and 3rd year Medical Students from the University of Bristol and work at the Children's Hospice. I have a special interest in Women's Health, Sexual Health, and Musculoskeletal medicine including joint injections.
I qualified in Bristol and I loved the city so much that I have stayed here ever since and made it my home. After completing GP training I worked as a salaried GP in inner city Bristol. I joined Northville Family Practice in September 2016. I have special interests in teaching, contraception, sexual health and women's health and fit contraceptive coils and implants. Outside of work I enjoy running to keep fit and also run around after my two small children.

They have to follow the instructions of the doctors and at the same time satisfy the patients' needs, occasionally under difficult circumstances, all of which makes it a very demanding job.
