Doctors

Dr Richard Foord
 BM (Southampton), MRCGP, DRCOG, DFFP
I spent my childhood in Enfield, Middlesex, and then moved to Southampton to study Medicine at University. After graduating in 1989 I worked in hospitals in Portsmouth, Basingstoke and Jersey, before completing my General Practice training in Southsea. I joined the Waverley Road Surgery as a full time partner in 1995. I am actively involved in all aspects of Primary Care, and have developed interests in prescribing, minor surgery and asthma. When not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children; I also play badminton and have taken part in the Great South Run a number of times 

 

Dr Helen Harper
BSc., MB.BS. (Lond 1988), MRCGP, DRCOG, DA, DFFPM
 Having been brought up and educated in this area I trained at University College and Middlesex Hospitals in London, qualifying in 1988. I completed a variety of jobs in London, Portsmouth and Guildford before working and travelling in New Zealand for 18 months. I returned to finish my General Practice training with a practice in Southsea and joined Salisbury Road as a partner in 1995. In 2003 the practice achieved training status and I have been the GP trainer since then. Teaching and training along with women’s health and elderly medicine are some of my special interests. I am married with 2 grown-up children. When not at work I enjoy sailing and walking.
Dr Richard Garland
BSC (Hons), MBBCh (1999),DRCOG, DFFP, MRCGP

 
I lived in Surrey until I was 12 years of age and then moved to Cornwall with my family. I lived in Cardiff for 20 years, having completing a degree in Physiology in 1993. I went on to study medicine as a mature student in 1994. I completed a variety of jobs including Anaesthetics before realising my true vocation as a GP. I completed my training in January 2009 and have now live in Hampshire with my wife who is a Pathologist in Southampton. I am interested in elderly care and diabetes. I have many interests outside Medicine including, travel, rambling, nature and natural history. I am an advanced motorist and a member of the National Trust. I have been an active member of the Church in Wales.

Dr Nick Moore
MB.BS. (London) 1997, MRCGP, DFFP, DRCOG, DipMedEd

I grew up in Southsea and attended St John's College, leaving the city in 1992 to attend UCL Medical School. I completed my hospital and GP training in 2003, working in Manchester before returning to the city in 2011, fulfilling a longstanding ambition to practice in Portsmouth. In my spare time I enjoy tennis and skiing and have a Pompey season ticket. I'm interested in technology and designed and manage this website. I am a GP trainer supervising doctors in the final stages of becoming fully qualified GPs. My medical interests general adult and elderly medicine. I also work one day a week as a clinical executive at NHS Portsmouth CCG who commission our local NHS services.

Dr Amy Durnford
MbCHB (Liverpool) 2005 MRCGP DRCOG DFSRH

I grew up in London moving to Liverpool when I was 18 to study medicine. I qualified in 2005 and later completed my foundation training in the Lake District. I always wanted to be a GP having seen our own GP look after several members of my own family and a further 3 years of general practice training followed in Manchester. After completing training, my husband and I moved to Portsmouth allowing him to enjoy a Portsmouth FC season ticket. I enjoy all aspects of general practice and have an interest in women’s health. When not working I enjoy reading, live comedy and films.

Dr Alice Emerson
 BM BS (Nottingham 1985) DCH DRCOG MRCGP

I was born in Sheffield but spent much of my early life in the Stratford-on-Avon area. My medical training was in Nottingham and Sheffield, and I rather assumed that my GP career (the area of medicine which I had always wanted to follow) would also be in the north, but family reasons brought me to Portsmouth when my children were very small and I have been happily settled in the area ever since – joining Waverley Road Surgery as a partner in 1992. Away from work, when not juggling the demands of husband, children – and now grandchildren – I enjoy choral singing, growing vegetables and chasing after my two extremely naughty spaniels.

Dr Emerson stepped down as Senior Partner in April 2016 but continues to work at the practice on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays

Dr Sarah Reid
BM (Southampton) 1999, MRCGP, MRCP, DRCOG, DFSRH

 

I grew up in East Sussex before moving to Southampton to study medicine where I qualified in 1999. I then completed a variety of jobs within the region and also had an exciting year working and travelling in New Zealand. On returning to Portsmouth I completed a three year rotation through medical specialities before starting my General Practice training. I completed my training at Salisbury Road Surgery in 2008 and was delighted to remain as a salaried GP. I enjoy all aspects of general medicine but my particular areas of interest are women’s health and elderly medicine. I live locally with my husband, who is an anaethetist, and our three young children.

GP Registrars and Foundation doctors

As an accredited training practice we also have doctors who are in their final 18 months of specialist trainining to become independent GPs themselves working with us. These doctors are fully qualified but are supervised by an experienced GP in the practice at all times.

Our Registrars sometimes video record consultations as part of their training. This is subject to a strict confidentiality policy and the consultation is viewed only by the trainee themselves and the doctor supervising them before being erased. You will always be asked to sign a consent form when this is taking place- if you don't wish to participate in this you are free to decline and this will not affect your care in any way. We appreciate your co-operation as videoing consultations helps us train the next generation of GPs and ensure they are equipped with the skills they need. We also host Foundation doctors in their second year after graduation who work under the supervision of an experienced GP in the practice.
