Date started: Tue 10th October 1978

I was born in Essex and still support their cricket team. I trained at Bristol University and spent the next few years in various hospital posts in Bristol, Plymouth and Exeter. In Exeter, I was one of the first General Practice trainees on the (then) new vocational training course for GPs.

I joined Pembroke House in 1978, and was the Trainer for new GPs in the practice from 1981.

I became a member of the Local Medical Committee, the committee which looks after and represents GP colleagues, whilst still a trainee in Exeter, and then elected in my own right from Paignton. I became Chairman of the Torbay branch and later the Devon Committee, a post I held for 8 years. After the disbanding of the Devon LMC, I was responsible for setting up the new Devon office of both North and South LMCs, now based at Deer Park, Exeter.

In the practice I enjoy looking at bones and joints, and I was an assistant in Rheumatology at the local hospital for 20+ years.

I enjoy the organisational side of the practice, and I have always been involved in helping to make the structure of the NHS work locally. The reorganisation of the Health Service in 1997 introduced management at a local level (Torbay). I was Chairman of the Primary Care Group, and of its successor the Executive of the Primary Care Trust.

Now my 3 children are all grown up, in my spare time, I follow, watch and now occasionally play cricket. I enjoy walking, and the moors give the ideal opportunity to do this, and I have great fun with DIY, especially building brick walls!! Since becoming part time in the practice I have found a great new interest in painting – mainly water colour, and one day may even produce a passable picture !

I was very proud to be made an MBE in the Jubilee honours list and I know I could never have achieved this without the support and help of all those around me.

All partners provide contraception, maternity care and domicillary visiting.
