Our Staff




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.


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


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.


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 anaesthetist, 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 training 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.

Nurse Practitioners

Our Nurse Practitioners are fully trained and have the experience to triage, manage, and prescribe for patients with a wide range of conditions. They also run specialist appointments for conditions such as Diabetes & High blood pressure.

Practice Nurses

Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.

Healthcare Assistants

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They can also perform certain dressing changes and see patients to support them with smoking cessation. Please ask at reception for more information about the healthcare assistants at our practices.


Physiotherapists now offer same day triage appointments available for any musculoskeletal problems. Phone reception early morning to book. There remains a self-referral pathway for community physiotherapy services for those with an ongoing need. In house physio appointments are also available when appropriate.

Social Prescriber

Within our Primary Care Network are our Social Prescribing Team. Kate is our Social Prescriber and our Health & Wellbeing Coach, Katie. They can support and help patients particularly with non-medical issues, lifestyle support and advice, signposting to community projects, advisory services and charitable organisations.

Pharmacy Team

Our Pharmacy Team, led by Pharmacist, Radia, are shared with Trafalgar Medical Group Practice, linked to our Primary Care Network. They can deal with most prescription issues. They liaise with local community pharmacies and patients, update medications lists, and help with general medicines management.

Practice Management


Business Manager

Julia Robinson is our Business Manager. She joined Waverley Road Surgery in 2011 as practice manager and oversaw the merger with Salisbury Road Surgery in 2015. Her main role is managing the financial and business operation of the practice. She is supported by her administrative team who are primarily based at our Salisbury Road site.


Operations Manager

Lisa Hewett is our new Operations Manager. Lisa has worked within General Practice for 16 years starting as a receptionist in East Grinstead and more recently working as an Administration Manager at a GP Surgery in Havant. Lisa will oversee the general day to day running of both sites in close liaison with our reception leads at both surgeries. Lisa is based at our Waverley Road site.


Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits. We have a reception lead at each of our sites who will be pleased to help you if you have any questions. Our team are here to help, however they have a right to carry out their duties without fear of abuse or violence. We operate a zero tolerance policy in relation to violent or threatening behaviour and this can result in removal from our practice list.
