I have joined Concord Medical Practice at the beginning of April 2019. My career started in banking and continued for over 22 years, before moving on to the Insurance industry. I have had a change of career a few years ago to work for the NHS in various Practice Management roles across the North east.
I have a passion for working in General Practice, my aim is for patients to receive the treatment they deserve in a timely and effective way. Here at Concord Medical Practice we strive on delivering excellent service to our patients and continue to work on how we can improve elements of General Practice. I am interested in hearing your thoughts, views and ideas so please do not hesitate to contact me.
