I am a GP in Sheffield and an Associate Training Fellow in the Academic Unit of Primary Care.

I trained in Sheffield, graduating in 2005 and completed GP training, also in Sheffield in 2010.

From 2010-2011 I worked as a volunteer doctor in a primary care clinic in Malawi, before returning to Sheffield to work as a GP.

Alongside my NHS work, I work as a volunteer for Virtual Doctors, a charity providing remote medical support to health care workers in rural Zambia and Malawi.
