I am an experienced GP having worked my whole career in the NHS. I trained in Leeds and worked initially in semi-rural Yorkshire, moving to London for family reasons.
My first practice in London was in Wood Green and after several years I took over a retiring GP list in Muswell Hill at Rutland House Surgery. This list has grown to what is now a medium-sized group practice. I retired a year ago and continue to work as a part-time sessional GP.
Why did I choose general practice?
Not a difficult choice; I could not imagine doing anything else. Never a dull moment as a GP, with such a variety of problems that come your way.
I enjoy being part of a local community and offering continuity of care to the local population.
I am presently working for 2 days which is madly busy with triaging and seeing patients and doing the occasional home visit. I spend time every week attending and doing online training to keep up to date with medical advances and meet the requirements for CPE.
