Kris qualified from Birmingham university in 2001 with a medical degree and a new-found appreciation of the Black Country accent. After finishing GP training in 2007, Kris has had a varied career in the NHS including working in regular GP surgeries (as a locum, salaried GP and GP partner), out of hours and prison settings. He joints with a total of 15 years of NHS GP experience and unwavering enthusiasm and belief in the value of primary care and general practice in the health service matrix.
His special interests are dermatology, mental health and addictions, however he finds the variety afforded by everyday general practice and the continuity allowed by primary care to be the most rewarding aspect.
Outside of work, Kris lives with his long-term partner Nicola and 10 year old son Leon. Free time is spent being told how un-cool he Is from his son, as well as coaching his son’s football team and playing tennis when time allows.
