Associate Dean - GP
Bio: 

After qualifying from Oxford Medical School in 1996, I returned to South Manchester.  After completing the Stockport VTS in 2000,  I spent a year as a locum GP before becoming a full time partner at Brinnington Surgery where I have been now for 14 years. 

I am a GP trainer and also have experience as a GP appraiser and as a facilitator on the HPE and PED courses.  I have completed a Postgraduate Certificate in GP Education at Manchester University and an MSc in General Practice at UCLan. I was a PCME in Stockport for 8 years running the ST3 structured teaching programme until 2015.  I joined the Associate Director  team in July 2014 with patch responsibility for both Stockport and Tameside and Glossop.  I currently tutor on the 'Basic' Trainers Course, the Teaching and Supervision Masterclass and am joint lead for the Foundation Training in GP support and development.

I live in Mellor (Stockport) with my wife Rachel (another GP trainer), three children - Emily, Lucy, Matthew, and a border collie called Sam.  I enjoy singing in Mellor Church Choir and hill walking.
