|Dr Ash Dawson (m)|
MB ChB, BSc Hons, MRCGP, PG Cert Palliative Care
First registration 2001 Leeds
Graduating from Leeds Medical School in 2001 with degrees in Medicine, Surgery and Pharmacology. As a doctor I have worked in cardiology, general surgery, vascular surgery, adult and paediatric emergency medicine, orthopaedic surgery, gynaecology, elderly medicine and palliative care.
Further afield I have worked as an expedition doctor in the jungles of Central America managing tropical disease and as an expedition leader in South East Asia.
Having completing specialist training, I started work as a GP in 2007. My areas of particular interest are musculoskeletal medicine, acute medicine and palliative care but consider myself to be very much a generalist who enjoys unpicking new problems from all areas of medicine and surgery.
I live in Buxton with my wife, Jennie, and daughters Prudence and Verity, and when not at work I am either asleep, hanging out with the family, knocking out pizza dough or doing DIY. 'Me' time is few and far between but whenever possible I like to sail, and go for the occasional run if under duress from my marathon-running better half!
