I trained in General Practice in the local Worthing GP training scheme 1984-86 and have worked at Ball Tree ever since.
I have an interest in GP Education and have worked as tutor on the local GP training scheme, Educator for established GPs and also supervise trainee GPs (GP Registrars) in the practice. I have a particular interest in mental health but love the breadth of general practice.
Having been at the practice for quite a while, I find it rewarding to meet new mothers whom I remember being born themselves!
On Tuesdays, I currently work as the Educational Lead for our local NHS Coastal West Sussex Clincial Commissioning Group (CWS CCG) that organises health care in West Sussex. (See our main menu under our Local NHS)
