Hi, I’m Sania!

I have very recently joined HEE (as of 23rd May 22!) and the team as a Primary Care School Support Administrator and I will be supporting the Bradford scheme. I previously worked at The University of Bradford in The Placements Team supporting MPharm, Radiography, Arch and Forensic placements, so this is a complete new challenge that I’m excited to tackle, I will be asking a lot of questions over the next few months so bare with me!

I love to travel, read and spend time with my family and friends.

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, innovative GP training posts, Practice Managers Collaboration and clinical posts in ENT/Ophthalmology. I can be contacted via email at
