Alison qualified from Liverpool Medical School in 1986 and has worked in Australia and South Africa, as well as in Merseyside, Manchester and Gloucester. She moved to Cornwall in 2003 with her husband and three children.
With a longstanding interest in population, as well as individual health, Alison has always enjoyed stretching traditional boundaries to work across different sectors for the benefit of patients. She was a GP partner at Carnon Downs Surgery until 2013, where she established multidisciplinary obesity and diabetes prevention clinics and encouraged the practice to join the Healthy Workplace Award Scheme. Alison is now working as a sessional GP at Carn to Coast Health Centre.
Alison has been the GP lead on the Cornwall Healthy Weight Group and the NHS Health Checks Strategic Group for many years and the Clinical lead for Long Term Conditions since 2014. She is committed to the integration of high quality services around the needs of patients.
Away from work, Alison enjoys time with her family, running, cycling and sea swimming.
