BM DCH DFFP DRCOG DCH DGM MRCGP (Southampton 1991)
I qualified at Southampton University Medical School in 1991, having completed my GP training in West London. I joined Glenlyn Medical Centre as a partner in 1996. I enjoy all aspects of community care and am pleased to say that Glenlyn offers a diverse service to our patients. I have also been a GP Trainer since 2000 and advocate a strong teaching culture in the practice. More recently we have developed a range of community clinics offering patients the opportunity to see a specialist at a local surgery rather than in hospital.
MBChB MRCGP (Capetown 1995)
I grew up in South Africa and qualified in 1995 from the University of Cape Town. I did my internship at Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town. From 1997 I spent 3 wonderful years in Yorkshire doing my GP training. After travelling widely I came back to London and joined the Glenlyn Medical Centre in 2001.
I really enjoy the continuity of care and the variety of General Practice but am particularly interested in Minor Surgery, Joint Injections and Paediatrics. I am also a GP Trainer, teaching junior doctors to become GPs. Glenlyn has been a teaching practice for many years and this contributes to keeping our medical standards very high.
I am heavily involved in Surrey Downs Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). This is an organisation that determines the health provision for a wide geographical area that includes East Elmbridge. This is for all medical provision, mostly hospital, out-patient and community care and not just GP care. I have a keen interest in ensuring that East Elmbridge patients are well catered for. Unfortunately this draws me from full time General Practice.

MBChB (Stellenbosch 1989), MRCGPI am of British background, but grew up in South Africa and qualified in Cape Town. I initially did GP training in the UK from 1993 to 1995 and returned to Cape Town where I worked for myself in private practice until 2001, before returning back to the UK to resume a career in General Practice.I am attracted by the diversity of everyday general practice and currently teach anatomy and clinical skills to third year medical students at St Georges Medical School. I also tutor final year medical students for St Georges and Barts and the London Medical Schools who spend some time with us at the surgery. In addition, I enjoy performing Minor Surgery and run a clinic every Thursday.

Advanced Nurse Practitioners have taken additional qualifications in clinical diagnosis and prescribing.
We are very pleased to have the Advanced Nurse Practitioner team joining our medical team.
Urgent Care Centres around the country are being run by Advanced Nurse Practitioners. Their role has now extended and they are being used by out of hours centres for evening and weekend clinics.
The Urgent Care Clinic (held at the Giggs Hill branch) caters for sudden problems like sore throats, rashes and fevers. Patients have access to our dedicated and experienced Advanced Nurse Practitioners who can diagnose and prescribe for these conditions, just like doctors. They are able to direct complex cases to doctors at the surgery, if there is a need.
