Gemma Hudson Scheme Administrator

Gemma Hudson (& Emily)

I joined the Postgrad team at BTHFT as the GP Scheme Administrator in July 2016 and will usually be your first point of contact for any queries you may have.  I have just over 20 years experience of working in an administration role having previously worked in the private sector.  I thoroughly enjoy my role on the scheme and seeing trainees develop from ST1 to qualified GPs.

I have a young daughter who takes up most of my spare time but when I do get the chance I enjoy going to the cinema and theatre.  I also enjoy walking with family and friends.

If you have any queries about the training scheme please do not hesitate to contact me at; Bradford GP Speciality Training Scheme, Bradford Royal Infirmary, Field House Teaching Centre, Duckworth Lane, Bradford BD9 6RJ or email me at

Since finishing my GP training in Bradford I’ve worked at Bevan House, an inclusion health practice for some of the most vulnerable in Bradford. I’ve been on the TPD team since 2017 where I’m responsible for the modular programme and GP clinical posts in paediatrics and palliative care. I’ve also run CSA support groups and am hoping to develop this further.

When I’m not working or trying to make sure my children have clean clothes, full stomachs and happy hearts, I try to find time to swim in the Wharfe or cycle into the Dales for coffee and cake.  If you need to get in touch please email me at

I completed my GP training in Bradford in 2004. Following this I went to work on a hospital ship in West Africa for 2 years before returning to work as a GP in Bradford at the Ridge Medical Practice, where I am a now a partner, trainer and medical student tutor. As well as post graduate GP education I have an interest in inclusion health, and worked a day a week for 7 years with Bevan Healthcare, the practice for the homeless and asylum seekers in Bradford. I love the diversity and challenges I see in my day to day practice and am passionate about providing high quality postgraduate primary care education equipping primary care professionals to become capable and well rounded in their various roles. I am married and have 2 fantastic kids. Although we live in Leeds I haven’t forgotten my roots so still follow and support the Boro! I enjoy every kind of live music and watching peforming arts. I love walking up hills and mountains, and travelling down rivers, lakes and on the sea by whatever means possible.

I am currently your TPD responsible for Finance, New Posts, HR/BTHFT Liaison, Wednesday Tutorials, Practice Managers Collaboration and clinical posts in ENT/Ophthalmology. I can be contacted via email at
