I was born in Aldershot, Hampshire in 1970 and completed medical school at Birmingham University in 1993. Following hospital posts around the Midlands, I finished my training as a General Practitioner with a practice in Leamington Spa.
I joined the practice in 1988, on a part-time basis. I am available in surgery for six clinics a week, the remainder of my time being spent looking after my two children.
Raised locally in Rugby, I qualified from Birmingham University in 1994. My hospital posts were varied, and where possible in hill walking areas, as remote as the Outer Hebridies. My GP training was in Oban, Scotland.
Following this, I took a Fellows' post at Glasgow University allowing me to practice half time as a GP, whilst performing research and teaching medical students for the other portion. I joined the practice in 2000 and I am now the lead 'trainer' for doctors who join us to complete their general medical practitioner training.
Within the practice, I have a particular interest in heart disease, and training, development and education. I have the dubious "honour" of managing the IT system and helping to keep the systems and the staff up to date. (Mr Bill Gates is not my friend!)
I am married with two sons. I enjoy running, hill walking, long distance walking, tandem cycling and I am a violinist with the Rugby Rococo Players. I love everything Apple and all gadgets - I am officially a Geek.
I am, also (now officially), a runner as I have recently completed my first half-marathon in Coventry.
I graduated from Nottingham University in 1997 and completed my General Practice Training in Leicestershire in 2003.
I subsequently spent 13 months in rural British Columbia. Work in Canada was extremely varied, often requiring me to travel between sites by helicopter or ferry.
During the 15 months immediately prior to my appointment at Bennfield Surgery in July 2006, I worked at Loughborough Walk-in Centre. Here I supported emergency nurse practitioners in the care of patients with both illnesses and injuries.
Like Dr Doherty, I am now a 'trainer' within the practice helping doctors to complete their general medical services training with the general practice setting.
In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, walking and wildlife.
I joined Bennfield Surgery in July 2011 as a salaried GP and became a partner here in January 2012.
I am a part-time GP working six sessions a week. I was brought up in Manchester and I graduated from Glasgow University in 1987.
I have since spent most of my medical career working in Rugby, primarily as a GP but have in the past worked with the local Out of Hours Service specialising in clinical governance.
I am married with two children and in my spare time I enjoy reading, bird watching and nature and I am a keen supporter of Manchester United.
Dr Christopher Busby
I was raised in Coventry and went on to study Medicine at Birmingham University where I graduated in 2012.
My Junior Doctor training has seen me work in a variety of specialties across the West Midlands, and I completed my General Practice training in Coventry in 2018. I have joined Bennfield Surgery as a salaried GP after qualification.
I now live in Coventry with my partner, and am a keen follower of Wasps rugby.
