Dr Philippa Ec­cles will soon join the team. She is an ex­pe­ri­enced GP who trained at Ox­ford and re­lo­cated from the UK six years ago.

She has worked in both ru­ral and metropoli­tan prac­tices and en­joys the di­ver­sity of gen­eral prac­tice, in­clud­ing women’s health, fam­ily plan­ning and an­te­na­tal care.
