Biography

After an initial degree in psychology, I qualified in medicine in Cardiff 1986. Following postgraduate training in general practice at Guy's Hospital I joined what was then the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine as Lecturer in General Practice in 1990, becoming Senior Lecturer in 1995. From 1995 to 2017 I was also a part-time GP Principal in Harngey. I am now a part-time Salaried GP in Islington. I am  Honorary Consultant in Primary Care at NHS North Central & East London and at the Royal Free NHS Foundation Trust. My major educational interests are in undergraduate community based teaching and vocational training for general practice. I am Head of Teaching in the UCL Department of Primary Care & Population Health and Sub-Dean for Community Based Teaching at UCL Medical School. I am Programme Director of the Royal Free GP Specialty Training Programme and lead for Integrated Academic Clinical Training in General Practice at UCL. I have published four text books for GPs and GP trainees. My research interests include GP careers, educational evaluation, students' attitudes, use of chaperones in general practice, and communication between primary and secondary care.

Research Themes
Research Summary

The overarching aim of my research has been to inform and improve practice in the field of general practice and primary care education. I have published in high impact medical journals including the British Medical Journal (BMJ) and British Journal of General Practice (BJGP) and in journals intended specifically for medical educators.  I have a particular interest in developing research infrastructure by promoting educational research locally and nationally.  I have built at UCL one of the UK’s largest programme of integrated clinical academic training for GPs, now hosting a group of more than twenty clinical academic trainees from Foundation through ACF to ACL,  providing an essential pipeline for the next generation of primary care clinical researchers

Teaching Summary

I was promoted to Senior Lecturer in General Practice in 1995, and in 2006 appointed as Head of Teaching in the UCL Research Department of Primary Care & Population Health (PCPH). I have subsequently led on all aspects of undergraduate primary care education at UCL, overseeing the expansion of GP teaching from 3% to 15% of the MBBS curriculum, with a recurrent NHS SIFT income for PCPH of £2.8 million per year.I lead the Primary Care Education Group within PCPH which now includes six senior lecturers, two lecturers, three teaching fellows and five teaching administrators. We also run what was the very first intercalated BSc in Primary Health Care.

In addition to "core GP" programmes in the fifth and sixth years of the UCL MBBS programme we lead several courses involving GPs teaching medical students in their own practices and on campus in subject areas which have traditionally been taught exclusively in hospital eg general medicine, elderly medicine, women’s health, child health, mental health, dermatology. In 2008 I was appointed by UCL Medical School to the new role of Sub-Dean for Community Based Teaching in recognition for the first time of the community as a main campus for medical student teaching with equivalent status to  main teaching hospital campuses.  In the postgraduate field, as Programme director for GP Training, I have led on the expansion of places on the Royal Free GP Training Scheme from 3 per year in 2007 to 22 in 2017.  Within this programme I have also established a unique “Innovative Training Post” (ITP) in Primary Care Medical Education.
