DFSRH 2006 GMC No. 3287215 BSc (Hons) 1986 – MB ChB 1989 Manchester – FP Cert 1991 DCH 1992 – DRCOG 1993 – MRCGP 1993
I was a medical student in Manchester and completed my GP training in Stockport. I enjoyed 1 year in Accident & Emergency at Wythenshawe before joining Lambgates Health Centre in 1994. My special interests are: family planning and sexual health, minor surgery, dermatology and cardiology.
I have been a keen sportswoman all my life and currently enjoy fell running, mountain biking and I love the outdoors. I therefore have an interest in sports injuries.
I started training medical students in 1997 and subsequently converted Lambgates to a training practice in 2002. I love teaching these doctors of the future.
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.
MBChB 2011 Manchester University. MRCGP 2017. GMC; 7135981
I graduated from Manchester Medical School in 2011. After completing my foundation training in Wigan I took a year to locum in different A&E departments in Manchester and I volunteered in East Africa.
I did my GP training in Stockport where I worked in Paediatrics, Orthopaedics and Geriatrics. After qualifying in 2017 I locumed in Cheadle Medical Practice before taking the role of a salaried GP at Lambgates in January 2018.
I am the Safeguarding Lead in the practice. I enjoy teaching medical students and junior doctors. I am looking forward to becoming a GP trainer in the future.
When I’m not working I enjoy playing football for Altrincham and Hale Ladies FC, and developing my rock climbing skills.
From time to time we may have Locum doctors taking surgery to cover our regular doctors holidays and sickness.
