GP Education Team

Dr Hannah Richmond MRCGP Associate Postgraduate Dean for Gloucestershire

I joined the Gloucestershire GP education team in October 2020. I have been involved in GP education for a long time beginning as a trainer in South Gloucestershire. I then joined the Bath education team as a fellow for a year followed by eight years as a TPD in Bristol. I enjoy combining my education work with sessions as a less than full time GP. When I’m not working I enjoy a reading a good book and singing a cappella with my chorus and quartet.
