|Dr Michael Laurie (m)|
Dr Laurie joined the practice in August 2015 as a salaried GP.
I qualified as a GP in summer 2015, so Lambgates is my first job after gaining the MRCGP. After my medical degree in Dundee I stayed there for my foundation years and began my GP training there too. I moved to the Windmill practice in Denton for my final year, having moved into this area for family reasons.
Prior to re-training in medicine, I had studied maths at Oxford and computing science at Newcastle and I had a 10-year career as an IT systems developer.
I consider myself a generalist, and I don’t see myself as having special interests as such: I welcome consultations on any topic. I do enjoy Ear, Nose and Throat, and I do joint injections. I also enjoy teaching students and doctors in training.
I enjoy music, and I play trombone in Glossop’s "Regent Big Band". I like outdoor activities on the gentler end of the spectrum such as hillwalking and camping.
