MB BS (St Bartholomew’s, London 1992) MRCGP DRCOG DCH

Qualifications - MB BS (St Bartholomew’s, London 1992) MRCGP DRCOG DCH I qualified at St Bartholomew's College (London) in 1992 and since then I have worked as a Medical Officer in the RAF, lived in China, worked in private practice in Singapore, before returning to work in the NHS in 2003. Although I consider myself a 'general' GP, I do have particular interests in children’s health, mental health, learning disabilities and dementia but I am happy to treat all that crosses the threshold! I am passionate about people, patients, and health; the core reasons I became a GP. Additionally, I am using my GP experience as a Clinical Director for Bucks ICB Chiltern CCG, to help shape health services for the local community for Mental Health Learning Disabilities and Dementia.


MB BS DFFP (Royal Free, London) 1992

Qualifications - MB BS DFFP (Royal Free, London) 1992 I qualified as a Doctor in 1992 from the Royal Free School of Medicine in North London. After my junior doctor year I went straight into training to become a GP on the Oxford Vocational scheme and have now been qualified for 19 years and always worked locally. I currently work 6 sessions at John Hampden surgery. I grew up and was educated locally in Buckinghamshire therefore know the area well and continue to enjoy living in the village and its surrounding beautiful countryside. During my time as a GP, I have been able to have a portfolio career alongside my GP role that you as patients see. This has included being a Clinical Commissioning Director for over 13 years first in Chiltern CCG then in Buckinghamshire as the CCGs of Bucks merged. In my role I led on the commissioning of services for patients across the County in Urgent Care and Primary Care. More recently I have used that knowledge in a new role as Medical Director for Buckinghamshire within BBOLMC (Bucks, Berks, Oxford Local Medical Committee) and also as a member of the General Practice Committee of England. I now help support and protect our General Practice workforce and the work we do for you as patients. During this time, I have also continued to Clinically Appraise local GPs to support their revalidation with the GMC It is a privilege to work at JHS with the wonderful team and patients alike.



I qualified from Nottingham Medical School in 1990 and became a fully qualified GP in 1994. I've been living and working in Buckinghamshire since 2004 although having been born and bred in Ickenham, it felt like I was "coming home" when I moved to the area! I have a long history with The John Hampden Surgery having done Dr Mallard-Smith's maternity locum for her 2nd child in 1998 but then there was a long gap in our acquaintance, until I started locum work for the practice again about 5 years ago. I've enjoyed regular locum sessions at the surgery over the last 5 years so when I was offered the chance of a permanent role I jumped at it! Having been a locum for 5 years, I'm really looking forward to getting to know individual patients again and offering some continuity of care. I live near Beaconsfield with my husband and 2 teenage sons so when I'm not working, I'm a taxi driver running my children round they have much better social lives then either of their parents!!



I completed both academic and clinical training at the University of Cambridge in 2009. Following this, I returned home to do my house officer years in the Oxford Deanery and GP training in Windsor Vocational Training Scheme. I qualified as a GP in 2015. Since qualifying, I have worked as a salaried GP in Surrey and Buckinghamshire. I am currently undertaking a distance learning program with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in Public Health. I love to combine supporting patients and General Practice research. It is rare to enter my consultation room without a recent medical paper or up-to-date guidance being open beside me! I am a mother to three boys, but as they continue to grow I hope to be able to develop expertise in different areas of general practice to help support the needs of our local population.

Locum GPs

The practice occasionally employs locums (qualified GPs) on a temporary basis.


Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.






The practice is supported by our Phlebotomist, Maria on a Tuesday and Friday morning. Maria conducts the majority of blood clinics.

Practice Management

The practice manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.


Practice Manager


Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits. The team comprises Sarah (Reception Manager), Shirlie, Suzanne, Diane, Jenny and Debra (Practice Secretary).
