Dr Phil Hughes

MB ChB DCH MRCGP

I was born and brought up in Liverpool in a non-medical family and qualified in Leeds in 1985. After house jobs at Otley I worked in O+G and Paediatrics for 3 years in Leeds and Harrogate before turning to General Practice. I trained at West Ayton and Prospect Road, as well as A+E and Care of the Elderly.

My particular interests are the GP as a specialist in "patients with more than one illness", Pre-hospital Emergency Care, Education and Practice organisation.

Within the practice I lead on Postgraduate Training and Enhanced Service delivery

Outside of medicine I am interested in sustainable living, growing my own vegetables and fruit. I am married to Colette who is also a GP.

I qualified in Liverpool in 1986. Initially I worked in anaesthetics in Merseyside and Australia. I did my General Practice training in Scarborough. 

Within the practice I take responsibility for QoF and Practice Based Commissioning. I am a GP trainer and also teach undergraduate medical students. I have a particular interest in acupuncture, and in drug addiction services.

Dr Asif Firfirey

MB ChB

I completed my medical training at the University of Cape Town in South Africa and my internship in the rural town of Umtata in the Transkei, which is in the Eastern Cape Province. After working for four years as a GP in a busy inner city practice as well as a branch surgery consisting of a converted shack in an informal settlement, I got married and we decided to move to the UK.

I initially worked as a Senior House Officer in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, completing posts in General Medicine, Paediatrics and Obstetrics and Gynaecology, before joining the GP training scheme in Scarborough. My training included rotations in A+E, psychiatry and an innovative post in musculoskeletal medicine.

I started working as a salaried GP at Eastfield Medical Centre in January 2007.

I am very interested in musculoskeletal medicine in primary care, as well as conditions related to sports and exercise. In the practice I am the IT lead and I am also involved in undergraduate training, with regular teaching sessions in mental health, child health and General Practice for medical students. I am also the practice commissioning lead and represent the practice on the Scarborough Clinical Commissioning Group.

Away from work, I tend my vegetable patch, as well as spending time with my three sons. I am the local Lifeboat Medical Advisor and also enjoy mixed martial arts.

Dr Aldwin Altonino C Sayo

MD, MRCGP

I was born and raised in Davao City located in the southern part of the Philippines. I studied Medicine in Davao Medical School Foundation and completed my training in May 1997. I took residency training in Internal Medicine for 3 years before coming to UK in 2003 where I initially worked as a Hospital Porter before qualifying to work here as a Doctor. I had my first house job in 2005. Most of my Junior Doctor posts were spent in Hull Royal Infirmary doing rotations in Care of the Elderly; Chest Medicine; Rheumatology and Acute Medicine. I joined the GP scheme in Scarborough and finished my training here in Eastfield.

Outside work, I spend most of my time enjoying the company of my family and friends.

Dr Jennifer Argile

MbChB MRCGP DFSRH

I grew up in Teesside before going to study Medicine at the University of Sheffield graduating in 2010. I then moved to Scotland to complete my Foundation training in Stirling and Glasgow before returning closer to home to do my GP training in Scarborough. My first 6 months were here at Eastfield and I then completed hospital jobs in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, A&E and Old Age Psychiatry before returning to General Practice for a year at Danes Dyke Surgery.

My husband and I got married in June 2015 and we recently moved into our first home. He's a Mechanical Engineer in the RAF and we enjoy walking and exploring the moors when we can with our Welsh Springer Spaniel puppy Bailey.

Dr Anna Kemp

MBChB MRCGP DFSRH

I qualified from Leicester University in 2004, and did my house officer year at Scarborough Hospital. After that I took a short break from medicine, and worked as a conservation volunteer with The National Trust. Then I began my GP training on the Scarborough scheme, joining Eastfield Surgery as a permanent GP in April 2010. My particular medical interests are Dermatology, Women’s Health and Family Planning. I also offer a cryotherapy clinic.

I live with my husband Ben and our cat, Lucky. In my spare time I love being outdoors, walking, cycling or gardening. I also enjoy baking and music.

Dr Jenny Price

MBChB MRCGP DRCOG

I grew up here in Scarborough; I attended Scalby School before leaving to go to Sheffield University in 2004 where I studied Medicine. I qualified in 2009 and worked as a Junior Doctor in Sheffield. I completed rotations in Care of the Elderly, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Urology, and Psychiatry. I did GP training in Barnsley, working in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Palliative Care and Paediatrics.

I moved to Australia in 2014 and worked as a GP in Port Macquarie, 6hrs north of Sydney. I was fortunate enough to do a lot of travelling over the next 2 years and when I met my husband Ed in 2015 I took him with me!

When I returned to the UK I decided to move home to Scarborough after a brief 6 months in York, I worked as a locum before joining Eastfield as a permanent GP in 2016.

I gained a diploma in O&G and may develop this as a specialist interest in the future but I am still on the lookout for another.

I love to travel. I like being outdoors, walking, biking etc as well as spending time with family and friends.
