Dr James Boorer
Dr Boorer qualified from Bristol University in 2003 and initially embarked on a surgical career spending time in some major London hospitals and teaching at Oxford University. He moved to the South West in 2007 for higher surgical training. Soon after, he met his wife who was a GP trainee and she convinced him to change his career direction – something he has never regretted. He believes that he should listen to his patients and understand their concerns, and worries and then work with them on a shared diagnosis and management plan.

In recent years she has further developed her career gaining qualifications in Clinical Education and enjoys teaching medical students. She enjoys the benefits of a combined career in minor operations, General Practice and education.
