I am married to Sara and we have been working together at the The Wooda Surgery since 1993. We share a room so usually work on alternate days. We have three children and as a family we enjoy various activities in the area especially being able to visit the beach all year round. I am trying to improve my tennis as it is an enjoyable way to stay fit. I am the Clinical Manager for the practice and enjoy the variety of clinical conditions that we see General Practice.

After a career in hospital medicine culminating in the field of infectious diseases in Australia, I transferred to the North Devon general practice experience, which I love. I have particular interests in prescribing, child safeguarding as well as cardiology issues.
When I am not busy with the delights and demands of my lovely family of wife and three daughters, I enjoy sailing, canoeing, surfing and discovering new aspects of our beautiful area’s natural and cultural history. I am attempting to learn the piano.

After a French and Philosophy degree in Leeds I spent several years living abroad, teaching English.
Eventually, I decided to become a doctor.
After finishing medical school in Bristol I came straight down to North Devon, now my adopted home.
I joined The Wooda Surgery as a partner in 2012.
Dr Jess Danielson and I were married in 2015 and now job share at the practice..
I have an interest in medical education and help train new local doctors.
I'm also interested in how we organise healthcare locally and am the Clinical Manager for the practice.
Surfing, cycling, swimming and yoga keep me busy outside of work.
But I’m often found to be found propping UP the counter of a local café, with a coffee, and my nose deep in a book.

BSc (Hons) MBBS MRCGP
While I was completing my GP training here in beautiful North Devon, I really fell in love with the area and its diverse community - so I decided to stay! When I'm not at my desk in the Wooda Surgery, I can be found either at the stove working on my latest culinary creation, or traipsing across Exmoor with my camera in tow. I've really enjoyed getting to know Bideford and my patient's, and I am looking forward to being part of the Wooda team for many years to come.
