Jonathan qualified from Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ School of Medicine in 2005. His first job after becoming a doctor was at the William Harvey Hospital and he has stayed in the area ever since. His postgraduate training as a GP was completed spending time working in each of the three hospitals in east Kent as well as a year working in Canterbury as a GP.
Currently Jonathan works at New Lyminge Surgery, where he has been since 2010, and is finding work as a rural GP particularly rewarding. He has been accepted into the local community and is no longer called 'the new doctor'!
Motivated by a desire to positively influence the change the NHS is going through, and a belief that the only option to get good outcomes for patients is to become engaged with the process, Jonathan has become more involved with the CCG over the past two years. This culminated with an appointment to the governing body in June 2014. He is finding the process of clinical commissioning a "whole new world" but is relishing the challenge of making things better for patients.
Jonathan works with his wife Hannah, also a GP, and they live in Canterbury with their three sons.
