5th generation Dorsetman, born in the Yeatman hospital in Sherborne when my father was a dairy farmer in the 1960’s. My earliest memory is falling asleep on my father’s knee while he drove the tractor!

With a young family in tow it was in 2010 that we settled on the Somerset-Dorset border where I started running our Yeovil surgery. Kit is my very badly behaved black moggy, soppy & greedy in equal measures, this cat really does think he is more dog.
