Matt graduated from Bristol University in 1987 and moved to Reading in 1991. In 1992 he qualified in General Practice and has been a Reading GP ever since and a partner at Brookside Surgery for over 20 years.
During this time he has trained and worked as a Forensic Medical Examiner [Police Surgeon] for Thames Valley Police, has developed in-practice interests in minor ops and diabetes, and outside interests in Drug Rehabilitation Work [Working for the local NHS provider and setting up a drug detox programme at Yeldall Manor].
He has also worked for Reading FC for five years as a Crowd Doctor requiring accreditation for Advanced Life Support in Pre Hospital care.
More recently the outside interests have been relinquished to focus on the in-house demands of patient care and practice management and CCG work. Outside of work Matt is a husband and father of four.
