I graduated from Southampton Medical School in 2011. I then went on to complete my junior doctor training at North Hampshire Hospital completing rotations in Surgery, Orthopaedics, General Medicine, Paediatrics, Psychiatry, A&E and General Practice. I enjoy the diversity of General Practice and the continuity of care it offers and joined the Southampton GP training programme in 2013, finishing in 2016. I began working as a locum for the Grange in November 2017 and became a salaried GP in September 2018. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and exploring the local countryside.
