Business Meeting

Dr Mary Cheshire

Clinical Fellow

I started my career in the NHS when I was 15 years old as a Medical Personal Assistant at The Royal Oldham Hospital. After working for a couple of years, I went back to study my A'Levels and then to The University of Leeds, eventually qualifying as a Solicitor with the Government Legal Service (GLS) working for the Department of Work and Pensions and The Department of Health.

I enjoyed my role at the GLS however, I couldn't shake off my life-long ambition to become a doctor so I went back to University to study Medicine at Manchester Medical School. It was a fantastic experience! After graduating I went on to complete my training in local hospitals and General Practices (GP) while studying for the GP exams and also having a couple of kids in relatively quick succession!

I am now a newly qualified GP doing two varied roles, for part of the week I am a regular (if there is such a thing) GP, seeing patients at the Dawes Family Practice in Rochdale. For the other part of the week, I am working in Medical Education with Primary Care Academy and also working with the Greater Manchester Training Hub to guide the GP Fellowship.
