I was born in Derby to parents of Italian and Ukrainian heritage, hence the unusual surname (pronounced Sow-chin). I trained in London and graduated from St Bartholomew's University Hospital in 1982. I worked for a number of years in paediatrics at Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals until 1989 when I moved to Barrow in Furness, Cumbria to undertake GP vocational training, which I completed in 1992. In August 1992 I joined Rosegarth Surgery as a partner. Since then I have developed special interests in rheumatology and palliative care.

I moved to Rosegarth Surgery in March 2018 where I am a part time partner although I have been a GP in Calderdale since 1991. I also work part time at Calderdale CCG in the commissioning of health care for Calderdale. My clinical special interests are musculo-skeletal medicine and women’s health. I am committed to the promotion and support of healthy lifestyles and self-care. I believe in working with patients and the wider care community to develop this. I am married with 4 children and a variety of animals in my care. I love the great outdoors as well as socialising, cooking and watching a good film.

I joined Rosegarth & Siddal Surgeries from 1st February 2019. Before that, I was a GP at Queens Road Surgery, Halifax since 2002. After almost 17 years, I felt that I needed a change of environment and Rosegarth & Siddal seemed ideal for me. I was born and brought up in sunny Singapore where I spent my childhood and completed my A levels and compulsory National Service. Then I moved to the UK where I trained as a doctor at the University of Leicester Medical School and graduated in 1993. I had decided to become a GP and completed my GP training in South Yorkshire.
I am a fairly active person. In my spare time, I used to practice Iaido – a form of Japanese Swordsmanship martial arts using the samurai sword. I had attained the rank of 2nd Dan (Black Belt). I had to stop as my arms were starting to ache swinging the sword too many times. I now cycle for sport and exercise. It is kinder on the knees than running.
I live with my family in Halifax. I have 2 boys who are still studying. My wife is a qualified advanced nurse practitioner in Calderdale. In the weekends and occasional weekday evenings, we attend social/ballroom dances.

I was born in Sussex and trained as a doctor at Imperial College London. I graduated in 1990 and then did my GP training at Airedale Hospital, Keighley. I then worked as a fulltime GP partner at a large practice in Wiltshire for 24 years until I moved back to Yorkshire in Jan 2019 when I joined Rosegarth Surgery as a part-time salaried GP. My clinical interests include womens health, child health surveillance and minor surgery. I am married with 4 children, 4 grandchildren and 2 dogs- all of which keep me busy and fit! In my spare time I like to get outdoors and enjoy hillwalking, tennis, dancing and singing.
