Dr Isobel McKenzie - MB ChB (1983) Dundee, MRCGP DRCOG
I decided that I wanted to be a GP at the age of nine. We moved to Rome in the 70s because of my Father’s work and I attended St. George’s English School. I qualified from Dundee University in 1983 and then did a vocational training scheme in General Practice in Norfolk. After this I did some extra paediatrics in London.
My aim has always been to be a good all round GP. Over the years I have developed interests in Family Planning, Sexual Health and Gynaecology.
My husband and I enjoy going to Suffolk and Italy. I enjoy singing in a choir and playing the piano. After the death of my Mother my Father married a Finn, the mother of a friend who is a GP in Helsinki. So now we have a Finnish family too.
Dr Andrew Green - MB ChB (1990) Birmingham, DCH
I qualified from Birmingham University in 1990, and worked as a junior doctor in Worcester, Jersey, Birmingham and Paris before joining Yorkleigh Surgery in 1995.
My medical interests include paediatrics and child health, cardiology, rheumatology and complementary medicine. In the summer of 2010 I completed a fascinating two month sabbatical working at Lariboisiere Hospital in Paris.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, trains of all varieties, country music, wine, and France, with my ideal weekend being a combination of all of the above.
Dr Mark Malden - MBBS (1990) London, DRCOG DCH
I qualified from St. Georges’ Hospital Medical School, London in 1990 and after completing my GP training in 1995; I travelled to New Zealand where I worked as a GP for 3 years in Christchurch and Nelson, before returning to the UK.
I then worked as a sessional GP for several years before eventually settling in Cheltenham and joining the surgery in 2003. I enjoy all aspects of medicine but my areas of special interest are dermatology, cardiology and orthopaedics.
Away from the surgery my two young children do a good job of monopolising my time but aside from family and friends my interests are aviation and all things Kiwi especially their wine.
Dr Jane Pringle | MB BCh (1982) Belfast, MRCGP DCH DRCOG
Originally from Northern Ireland, I trained at Queen's University in Belfast and have worked since in both New Zealand and the UK. My medical interests include children's and women's health. My husband is a GP in the Forest of Dean and we have four children, a diminishing number of whom live at home now.
