I practice holistically aiming to build a relationship with my patients where we work together towards healthier living. I live with my family and work in Lincoln enjoying being part of a community. I grew up and trained in London and I also have 4 years of international medical experience. Whether you are local to Lincoln or a visitor I can try and help you with your medical needs.

 

I am a member of the Royal College of GPs, the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Medicine and the British Medical Acupuncture Society.

I have 20 years of NHS experience and 6 years of working in the private sector. I am passionate about being a GP. I strongly believe that the key to good medical care is thorough history taking and examination combined with continuity of care. I value the traditional values of general practice whilst embracing modern medical practice. Education is extremely important. I regularly attend courses and am up to date with NHS appraisal. I still work regularly in the NHS and teach at Lincoln University.


I can usually see you within a few days or even on the same day. You can chose to have a longer appointment if you wish. I will see you personally if you require any follow up appointments. I will try to get to the root cause of your problem and help you on your health journey.

Personalised health care tailored to your specific needs and situation.

Having a private GP allows for consistency of care. I will see you personally if you require any follow up appointments.

When booking an appointment, you can ring and get through straight away, no putting you on hold.

I will take the time to get to the root of the patient’s problem and use my experience to provide the most effective solution. 

It is very important to remember, using a private GP service should not be seen as an alternative for emergency services. In the event of an emergency please call 111 or 999 if you are within the United Kingdom.
