Originally a Kentish man I grew up in Chichester before going up to Selwyn College Cambridge.

|Dr Lisa Carpenter (f)|
MBChB, MRCGP, DRCOG, DFFP, DPD (Qualified 1998)
I grew up in Malvern and trained in medicine at Sheffield University.
I completed my GP training in Aylesbury and worked as a GP in Egham before moving to Ledbury to be close to family and back to the local area which I love.
I joined St Katherines Surgery in 2007 and enjoy being a partner of a busy practice in our community. I appreciate getting to know our patients as people and feel privileged and responsible in my role as a GP. I enjoy the variety of general practice as well as the depth of my special interest as the practice lead in dermatology.
I am married with two young boys who keep me very busy outside of work! I love spending time with family and friends, enjoy getting out and about to local events and also try to find time to do a little photography.
|Dr Verity Wilkins (f)|
I grew up in South Gloucestershire before training at Birmingham Medical School from which I qualified in the year 2000. I completed my GP Training in Dorchester in Dorset before working as a GP in the West Midlands and Worcestershire.
I joined St Katherines Surgery in 2011 and have recently taken over our Minor Operations Clinic.
I am married with 2 little girls and I enjoy walking, cooking and keeping fit when I have the time!
|Dr Gillian Flewers (f)|
BM, DCH, DRCOG, DFFP, MRCGP (Qualified in 1998)
I graduated in 1994 from Southampton University with an RAF Cadetship and continue to complete my GP training in the military by 1998. This allowed me the opportunities to spend time in the Falkland Islands and also Kuwait. Perhaps unusually, I met my husband whilst in the Falklands, who was also serving there at the time. After I left the RAF we had 3 boys and I worked for several years in a local surgery before we moved to New Zealand in early 2009. We lived the antipodean dream for nearly 5 years and have now returned to the UK to be nearer to family.
My medical interests are Child Health, Family Planning and Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

I am married and have three children. I enjoy keeping fit with British Military Fitness and going on obstacle races.
As an ex-Ledbury resident I am very pleased to keep my links with the town.
