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 Amna Ahmed (f)

Partner GP

MBChB 2011 Manchester University. MRC GP 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 am not working I enjoy playing football for Altrincham & Hale Ladies FC, and developing my rock climbing skills. 


Dr Michael Laurie (m)

Salaried GP

GMC 7071064

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.
