About me

I have gained experience in managing acutely ill patients and telephone triage by working at NHS Direct Call centre, Out Of Hours (LCD) and taking part in regular on-calls for the practice. I keep my clinical knowledge up date by regularly reading InnovAit and the BMJ.

In my approach to work I am both caring and professional, and during my GP training I have developed a patient–centred approach. I have been consulting fluently in Urdu and Gujarti, which has enabled me to empathise and understand the cultural background of South Asian patients.

My commitment to General Practice and wide variety of extracurricular interests, have helped me to develop good interpersonal skills. I am also able to manage time effectively. As a newly qualified GP, I will be keen both to work hard at everyday clinical work, and to contribute ideas for the development of the practice.

I am a keen badminton and squash player: this is my personal way of ‘housekeeping’. I enjoy going to the theatre and plan to see Les Miserables and Wicked. I find reading relaxing, and my current favourites are books written by Simon Kernick and Jennifer Weiner. Travelling to India, Australia, Dubai and Europe has enabled me to appreciate different cultures and cuisines. I hope to draw upon my experiences and integrate them into General Practice.
