I have been a GP at Lander Practice since 2005. I enjoy all aspect of General Practice, including training Doctors and students for the future.
I particularly value involving patients in their healthcare decisions and would like to see more active patient involvement across healthcare in general.
Outside medicine I enjoy swimming competitively for Cornwall, running the Cornish footpaths with my black retriever, surfing on the north coast and playing Abba songs on the piano. I have an amazing wife and six fantastic children.

MB ChB (2006, Cardiff) nMRCGP 2011
I was lucky enough to grow up in Cornwall and went to Truro School. In 1999 I left the county behind to study Medicine in Cardiff, eventually returning to my home Town in 2008 to undertake GP training. I completed the GP training scheme in 2011 and after a period of time as a locum in various practices throughout Cornwall joined the Partnership here at the Lander Medical Practice in 2012 and I've not looked back since! I enjoy all aspects of providing Primary Care and have an interest in joint and soft tissue injections. Away from the Practice I enjoy spending time with my wife and our 5-yr old Son Oscar, who certainly keeps me busy! I am a keen motorsport enthusiast and also follow the trials and tribulations of Aston Villa, for better or worse...
I consider it an absolute honour and privilege to be a GP here in Truro and I really enjoy my job helping to look after you all.

Bsc MBBS 1992 MRCP MRCGP
I was born the week hey Jude was released! My school projects were about space, then fish and then brains.
I trained in Neurology before moving across to General Practice, though I still work as a specialist on Wednesdays. I worked in Afghanistan for a year before moving to Cornwall for Medecins Sans Frontieres and may return to this work after retirement.
I have twin daughters who make sure that any rest at home is kept to a minimum.
Sports are still a relaxation, mainly in the form of squash, cricket and running.
