Our Staff




Having trained in London, I moved west, before settling in Cornwall in 1997. I joined the team at Narrowcliff in 2000. I enjoy the challenge of general Practice, but when not working can often be found paddling my surfski or walking the dog!


MB ChB MRCGP DTM&H DRCOG Birmingham 1999

I undertook my medical training at Birmingham University graduating in 1999. This was followed with a year in both New Zealand and then Australia working in Emergency departments and a spot of travelling. On returning home I embarked on my GP training programme based mainly at Treliske hospital. I took a year out to work for MSF in Sudan before qualifying as a GP in 2007. I have worked full time in Cornwall ever since and been with the Narrowcliff team since 2011. I am enthusiastic about primary care and train doctors in becoming GP’s. Outside of work I love spending time with my Wife and Son and surfing as much as possible. I am also a volunteer crew member for the RNLI



I completed my medical school training at the University of Birmingham in 1995. After several years working in Australia I returned to do my GP training in Devon before moving to Cornwall. I worked as a locum and salaried GP in numerous practices before becoming a partner at Narrowcliff in 2011. I am fortunate to job share with Dr Lee who I have known for many years. This allows me time to pursue my other interests particularly in how the climate crisis impacts on our health and I am passionate about improving the health of our population through healthy accessible food and being active. I am the clinical lead for health and wellbeing. Outside of work I try and practice what I preach and enjoy spending time outdoors.




MB BS 2002 Royal Free School of medicine, MRCGP.

I completed my medical school training at Cambridge University and then my clinical years were completed at the Royal Free Hospital in London. After this, I came home to Cornwall to complete my GP training which has been a lifelong ambition since I was 10 years old! I trained at St Columb Practice and then moved to Narrowcliff to join the team as a partner in 2004. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, walking our two dogs and playing lots of tennis!


BM BS, Peninsula Medical School (Universities of Exeter and Plymouth July 2008) MRCGP

After completing my general practice qualifications I worked as a locum General practitioner in many surgeries across Cornwall and within the out of hours general practice service before becoming a partner in this surgery. I work as a full time GP here at Narrowcliff surgery (clinical days Tuesday through to Friday inclusive). It is a busy job providing care to a growing population in Newquay but one which I enjoy all the more so for the fantastic team within which we work. Outside of time at work... time spent with my young family in the fantastic Cornish countryside alongside a Surf or day in the garden are the things that get me up in the morning .

I then moved to Cornwall and completed my junior doctor and General Practice training at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. I started working at Narrowcliff in 2016 as a registrar and became a salaried doctor in 2019 and a partner in 2020. Clinically I have an interest in Women’s Health and have completed training by the Faculty for Sexual and Reproductive Health which allows me to fit intrauterine contraceptive devices and implants.

I completed my medical school training through Peninsula Medical School in Cornwall in 2011. After my junior doctor years in the Royal Cornwall Hospital I moved to Edinburgh where I worked in Emergency Medicine and Orthopaedics. I returned to Cornwall to specialise in General Practice. Having completed part of my general practice training at Narrowcliff I joined the team in 2018 and became a partner in 2021. Alongside my role at the surgery I work at the University of Exeter Medical school as the Deputy Community Sub-dean whilst also supporting wider education through the Cornwall Primary care Training Hub. Clinically I have an interest in Sports and Exercise Medicine through involvement in endurance events and team sport. Outside of work I live with my wife and two young daughters and spend my spare time enjoying the outdoor life Cornwall has to offer.



I grew up in Truro and moved away to study, firstly at Cambridge University reading Natural Sciences and then to Manchester University to complete my medical degree. After graduating from medical school in 2013, I returned to Cornwall to be close to my family again. I completed my foundation training at the Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust before taking some time out to cycle tour in North America. I then completed my GP training in Cornwall, before another cycle tour with my husband in South America. I joined the team at Narrowcliff Surgery in 2022. Outside of work I love spending time with my family outdoors - splashing in the waves at the beach, on our bikes or pottering around our allotment.


I studied at Cardiff University where I also completed a BSc in Pharmacology. I did my foundation training in Dorset before moving to Cornwall for GP training. I finished GP training in August 2021 and started working at Narrowcliff Surgery soon after. I have recently completed the New to Practice Fellowship which offers additional support and training to newly qualified GPs. I work three days a week at the surgery. I enjoy the variety of general practice and working alongside the great team we have at Narrowcliff.


I studied Medicine at Sheffield University where I also did an intercalated research degree. After qualifying in 2013 I did my foundation years in Cheltenham and Gloucester before spending a further 2 years in Paediatric training in London. I then decided GP was the career I wanted to pursue and moved to Bristol/Bath where I completed my GP training in 2020. I worked in South Bristol as a GP until mid-2023 when I made the move to Narrowcliff/ Cornwall. I love all GP has to offer and clinically I have an interest in child health (having completed the RCPCH Diploma in Child Health), dermatology, green health and health inequalities. When I am not at work, I am generally walking my dog or outside on land/in water and enjoy beautiful nature Cornwall has to offer.



I completed my medical degree at Lugansk State Medical University, Ukraine in 2014, I then spent the next few years completing my internship and mandatory national service in Nigeria. I moved to the UK in 2018, and after nearly 2 years working as a junior doctor in general medicine in Kent, I moved to Cornwall in 2020 for my GP training. As part of my training, I worked as a registrar at Narrowcliff Surgery, and upon the completion of my training in December 2023, I have stayed on as a Salaried doctor, working 3 days a week. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our young daughter.

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.

Social Prescribers

Our Social Prescribing team can link you to suitable sources of non-clinical support in the local community. Everything from support groups to exercise classes, gardening groups to financial support organisations.

Community Nurses

We have a team of District Nurses providing care in the community. You can contact them on 01637 834840 to discuss nursing care. They cannot offer advice re medical problems or emergencies. Our Community Matron works alongside the doctors. She cares for a small number of patients with complex needs who are at risk of frequent hospital admissions.
