I am the Senior Partner at Cadbury Heath Healthcare. I trained in Southampton University and moved to Bristol to complete my GP training in what was the Oaks Medical Practice in 2006. After working as a salaried GP and locum, I returned to the practice in 2013 as a Partner. Shortly after we merged with The Park Medical Practice to create Cadbury Heath Healthcare and through this time, I have been involved in managing significant change within our organisation.

I am a GP Trainer, clinical supervisor and mentor and try to inspire our future generation of clinicians. I have an interest in women’s health and contraception. I provide an implant and coil service for the practice. I also do joint injections. I have a great passion for continuity of care and the importance of knowing our patients’ and understanding their journey. I also have an interest in working closely with our community and developing services for our local population, empowering people to self-care and supporting patients to stay well for longer. I represent our practice in wider system discussions and across the PCN.

Outside of medicine, I am married and a mum to three young children. We love spending time at the beach, walking with our dog and generally having fun adventures together.

I started work as a GP at Cadbury Heath Health Centre in 2016 and became a partner in the practice in 2020.

I was born in South Wales and moved to Bristol to train as a physiotherapist at the University of the West of England. Having completed my training (BSc Hons) I worked as a physiotherapist at the Bristol Royal Infirmary for three years. I subsequently decided my main interests lay in medicine and I completed my medical qualifications (MB BCh) at the University of Bristol.

After several years working in local hospitals I undertook general practice training in the Severn Deanery and was awarded my MRCGP.

I enjoy all aspects of general practice and have developed particular interests in men’s health and musculoskeletal medicine. I am passionate about medical education and regularly teach medical students at the surgery. I am currently in the process of becoming a trainer at the practice in order to facilitate the education of future GPs.

I enjoy all sports. I am married and have three young children and a dog called Peggy.

I am the Managing Partner at Cadbury Heath Healthcare. I started my career as a Healthcare Assistant at Frenchay Hospital in 1993 before moving into management and leadership roles at Frenchay, Southmead and the Royal United Hospital. During this time I achieved a Master of Arts in Management at the University of the West of England.

I later diversified into Business and Strategic Management roles at South Gloucestershire Primary Care Trust before joining Cadbury Heath Healthcare in 2015 as Strategic Business Manager just after the merger of The Oaks and The Parks Medical Practice.

In 2016 I became the Managing Partner, later leading the expansion of the partnership to include Wellington Road Family Practice.

I was jointly responsible for setting up the BNSSG Training Hub from its infancy, which was responsible for offering and tailoring training courses to meet the needs and demands of Primary Care.

I was honoured to be selected to be part of the Leadership Challenge looking at systematic change with inspirational and influential leaders from across the City of Bristol.

I have a burning desire to help, equip and support staff to develop to their full potential.

I am passionate about serving the local community and delivering excellent patient care.I am very interested in the prevention of chronic diseases and the de-medicalisation of care.

In my spare time I provide respite care, I am a big fan of the Red Arrows. I also enjoy gardening, dancing and socialising as well as a busy family life.

Training practice

Cadbury Heath Healthcare has been accredited as a training practice

  • This means that we have doctors known as GP registrars and foundation trainees attached to the practice. GP registrars and foundation trainees are fully qualified doctors who are training to become general practitioners; they all have considerable hospital experience.
  • Our trainees are supervised by our GP trainers, Dr Atter & Dr Gallagher. Trainees always have a GP available for advice if required.
  • Occasionally the GP trainee and GP will consult together. Often this is a time when the trainee is being assessed.
  • They may also conduct surgeries which are video recorded. Your written consent will always be asked for prior to recording and recording will not commence without your explicit approval. Recorded consultations will be watched only by the registrar and Dr Atter – proving invaluable in the registrar’s education, development, and assessment.
  • In order to maintain our training practice status, we are regularly inspected by the deanery to ensure the highest standards are being upheld

We are a core training practice for all five years of medical students

  • Medical students spend time learning about all aspects of the practice, including observing consultations, practising their examination and consultation skills under the supervision and guidance of the GP.
  • They also spend time with the nursing team, frontline support team and community team. They may be asked to consult with patients with support and reviewed by the supervising GP.
  • All GPs in the practice are involved in training medical students.
  • Dr Atter and Dr Gallagher are our lead for medical student training. You will always be informed if a medical student will be present during a surgery and your consent will be requested, when possible, by receptionists at the point of booking and always by the supervising GP or nurse before the start of the consultation.

Expanded training roles

Our surgery also hosts physician associate students. They will be sitting in with GPs and observing consultations. Patients will be consulted with regards to whether they are happy for the physician associate student to be present.

GP net earnings

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (i.e. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working in Cadbury Heath Healthcare in the last financial year was £55,956 before tax and National Insurance.

This is for 0 full time GP’s,11 part time GP’s and 2 locum GP’s who worked in the practice for more than six months.
