MORE ABOUT OUR DOCTORS……...
Back in December Dr Bailey and Dr Russell joined our medical team. We are delighted to be able to share a little more about them
DR MICHELLE BAILEY
Dr Bailey completed her medical training at Birmingham University. Following this she entered into the Dudley GP training scheme and during that time developed an interest in Palliative Medicine. She went on to work in one of the few NHS run Hospices in the country alongside her work in General Practice. She continues to have an interest in Palliative Medicine, working as a local Macmillan GP. This involves training others and developing services in end of life and cancer care. She also has an interest in family planning.
Michelle is married with two lively children. When not at work she can often be found cycling round the Devon lanes or digging in her family’s allotment.
DR SARAH RUSSELL
Dr Russell qualified in 1999 from Birmingham Medical School. Postgraduate training developed her general medical skills and supported the attainment of diplomas in child health, obstetrics, gynaecology, family planning and tropical medicine. The latter was put to use during a 4 month voluntary post on the Burma border before she consolidated GP training in Cornwall and attained the MRCGP qualification.
She has settled in Devon with her husband and two young children, with whom she enjoys various outdoor activities such as sailing, cycling and camping.
