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.
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.

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, our two boys Jonathan and William and our cat, Lucky.
In my spare time I love being outdoors, walking, cycling or gardening. I also enjoy baking and music.

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.
At times fully qualified doctors who wish to enter General Practice are invited to join our practice for 6 months or 1 year. They have experience in hospitals and come to us to gain an insight into the nature of General Practice. They work in practice as part of our integrated clinical team
I am originally from Scarborough and trained as a registered general nurse in Leeds General Infirmary 1987-1990. I have worked in a variety of acute settings including medicine, theatres and coronary care. I also spent 5 years as a QARANC officer in the army, serving in London and Northern Ireland. My role in the army was very much like the role I have now, working very closely with the army GP I did further training to be able to work independently. Since leaving the army in 1998 I have predominantly worked in primary care. I have done my degree course in Independent Practitioning and my Extended Prescribing.
Outside of work I am married and have 3 teenage children which keeps me pretty busy! My hobbies are singing, local theatre and walking.
I work at the surgery 3 days a week and I am very happy to have joined the team here at Eastfield!
The practice is run by the Partners and a Management Team. The team is lead by the Practice Manager, Michelle Frankish and also includes an Assistant Practice Manager, Data Quality Manager, Nurse Lead and Reception Lead. The Management Team is involved in leading all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology.
I started working at Eastfield Medical Centre as a Receptionist in 2002 having moved from the hospitality industry. After my first week I instantly knew that I wanted to stay at Eastfield for a long time. Over the last 17 years I have progressed within the team and became the Practice Manager in 2011. My day to day job is extremely varied but my prime responsibility is to ensure that our dedicated team are providing the best possible care for our patients as well as looking after our staff and the finances. Although working within the NHS is challenging, I get immense job satisfaction from being part of this great team. As our Practice is continually expanding, I look forward to being part of this growth over the coming years contributing to excellent patient care. In my spare time I enjoy foreign travel and spending time with my energetic grand-children and crazy cocker spaniel J
I first joined the team at Eastfield Medical Centre in 2014 as an Administrator. In 2016 I took up the role of Assistant Practice Manager, working as part of the Management Team in order to help provide our patients with the best quality care. We have a great team of people working here at Eastfield Medical Centre and my role is extremely varied, something which I really enjoy.
I have lived in Yorkshire all my life. I completed my nurse training in 2002 and initially worked in A&E. I moved into Practice Nursing in 2007 and worked in a surgery in town. I moved to Eastfield as nurse manager in 2016. Even though I am able to perform all the usual Practice nurse tasks I concentrate mainly on chronic disease management, mainly Diabetes, Asthma and COPD.
I have recently completed my student mentorship course so I enable Eastfield Medical Centre to mentor and train nursing students.
I have 2 grown up children and a dog which keep me busy.
