From 2010-2019 I was a GP on the Isle of Arran in Scotland. As a partner in an island-wide group medical practice, this involved providing medical care to a population that fluctuated from 5,000 to 25,000 people, on an island the size of Greater Glasgow. As rural GPs we provided core general practice as well as prehospital medicine, A&E, intermediate and palliative care.

In July 2019 I relocated to East Lothian,. I worked in Tranent Medical Practice until January 2020 and worked as a locum throughout the county. I then worked as a salaried GP in Lauderdale Medical Practice, Dunbar, and since April 2020 have been a GP Principal/Partner. I teach students from Edinburgh University and do out-of-hours work with Lothian Unscheduled Care Service (LUCS). I welcome contact regarding opportunities to continue my interests in teaching and training.
