I enjoy all aspects of general medicine within General practice and enjoy putting the general medical training I undertook for 4 years around the West Midlands, before opting to do General practice, to good use.

I work 8 sessions (4 days) per week in General practice. I have a particular interest in Dermatology having also undertaken some additional training in this speciality.

I grew up in Derbyshire and studied Medicine at the University of Birmingham before training in Ophthalmology (Eyes) for 4 years.

After this time I realised I wanted to be able to practice more holistically and did my General practice training in the Black Country before starting at York House Medical Centre in 2009.

Each week I spend 7 sessions here at York House and 2 sessions working in the Corneal Clinic at Shrewsbury.

My particular clinical interests include Ophthalmology and Palliative Care, but I really enjoy the variety of general practice and particularly value the importance of communication skills. I am also safeguarding lead for the practice.

I perform minor operations including managing in-growing toenails and some eyelid procedures and also perform knee injections.

I have a keen interest in medical education and am involved in teaching final year medical students as well as anyone else that will listen to me waffle on.

I am married with 2 children and outside work I enjoy running (although not as fast as Dr Morton and Dr Alford…), swimming, spinning and rock climbing.

Dr Tristan Brodie (Partner)

Dr Brodie

I've worked as a Stourport GP since finishing my GP training 10 years ago. I commute from Southwest Birmingham in order to be a part of this fantastic healthcare team. I'm really excited at the prospect of working more closely with a larger group of health care staff as we continue to plan our merger; I feel we will be able to further enhance the care we deliver once we are working as one Stourport Medical Centre team offering continuity, patient choice and good access to appointments.

Whilst I enjoy the full depth and breadth of GP work, areas of particular interest to me are health promotion, diabetes and child health. I sit on the WFHP board and work for the Herefordshire and Worcestershire CCG as the clinical lead for Urgent and Emergency Care. Outside of medicine I enjoy running, cooking, and walking and cycling with my young family.

Dr Lizzie Follows

Dr Follows

I grew up in Essex and moved to Nottingham after a gap year teaching English in Thailand to study Medicine.

After house jobs in Derby I spent 6 months working in New Zealand before returning to the UK.

I had a number of hospital jobs whist I finally decided between anaesthetics and general practice and joined a GP training programme in the Wyre Forest qualifying in 2009. One of my training posts was at Stourport Medical Centre and I joined them again as a salaried GP in 2012.

It was the variety of the job that drew me to General practice – I love the fact that we see all age ranges from days old to over 100, all so different with different needs.

I have a special interest in women’s health and I am the lead for Women’s Health for the Wyre Forest Health Partnership. I carry out a regular family planning clinic, fitting coils and implants. I also enjoy teaching and have recently become a GP trainer.

I am married with two girls who are primary school age who keep me pretty busy. In my free time I love being outdoors – walking, biking, running and gardening. I also enjoy yoga, seeing friends and family and a good book.
