Simon has been practicing as a GP for over 30 years and has seen a wide breadth of conditions in his time.

In particular he has an interest in skin cancer management, after going through it himself. He understands the stress and worry that comes with this diagnosis, but also knows how important it is to be vigilant about prevention as well. 

He enjoys the long term relationships he’s built with people and their families, watching the kids grow up and helping them along their health journeys. 

Cycling, walking, and travel are some of Simon's favourite things to do in his spare time.

Building long-term relationships with patients and their families is a joy, and I love being part of their health journeys.
Dermatology is the branch of medicine that deals with skin, hair, and nail health, focusing on diagnosing and treating various skin conditions and keeping the skin in good shape.
