I qualified from Leeds University in 1989. Following GP training, I have been working as an NHS GP in Huddersfield for over 20 years.

Following some personal health problems, which conventional medicine failed to solve, I sought some medical advice from a practitioner who used a root-cause approach, similar to functional medicine. The resolution of my health issues led me to seek training in this approach. Since then I have completed training with both the Institute of Functional Medicine and the British Society of Ecological Medicine.

When you learn about functional medicine, it makes so much sense to search for the root causes of a patient’s illness. I love having so much more time to spend with patients and to be able to offer a truly holistic, personalised approach.
