Dr Karoline Weir – Female
MB, ChB, FRCGP
First registration 1984 Liverpool.
After qualifying I spent 5 years in the RAMC (army doctor looking after troops and their families). Although I didn’t see any active service I witnessed the results of troops returning from war zones. I also took part in all military exercises. I worked as a locum GP before joining Elmwood Medical Centre (initially at 3 The Square) in August 1992. I am the nominated partner in the practice doing minor surgery (lumps and bumps) and also contraceptive implants and removals. I otherwise am a generalist clinically, and, along with the other partners in the practice deal with issues relating to the functioning of the practice and partnership. In my spare time I enjoy cycling and trekking.
