Additional Notes
I was born in Warrington and after spending 10 years living in Padgate, moved to Grappenhall where I attended Lymm high school.  I completed my medical training at Liverpool University, after this I worked in Southport hospital for 3 years, it was here I decided my love was for General Practice, which saw me move back to Warrington to work as a GP in Stockton Heath.

I have now worked in General Practice for 10 years. Over the years I have developed interests in both care of the elderly and musculoskeletal/sports medicine.

Outside of work I have a busy family life with two young children and 3 black Labradors (I must be mad!).

I grew up in South Wales and moved to London to complete my medical training at St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School. I knew I wanted to be a GP from the outset so did vocational training at West Middlesex Hospital. Following this we moved up North and settled in Lymm. I was initially a salaried GP in Preston for a year and then in Leigh for the past 13 years.

During this time I developed an interest in women’s health and family planning. I am qualified to fit both coils and implants.  I also have an interest in palliative care and, being a GP trainer, in medical education.

As well as sessions in surgery I have a role as Clinical Director GP Out of Hours based in Wigan.

When not at work I enjoy choir, dance and my two teenage daughters keep me busy!

Dr Specialist Trainee GP

Trainee GPs/ Pre-Registration House Officers

Mrs Jessie Kazenel

Job Title
Practice Nurse
Additional Notes
Hello to all!
I'm a Boston(USA)-born, Canada-trained nurse and have been loving life here in the UK since 2014.
Thus far I've spent my 8-year nursing career in Adult and Paediatric intensive care. I joined the Springfield Medical Centre team in March to expand my nursing horizons into general practice and to work with patients to meet their long-term health goals.
I spend my out-of-work time hiking, crocheting, cooking, baking, and cleaning (which I find cleaning both enjoyable and stress-relieving!).
I'm really enjoying my time here so far I'm looking forward to continuing to meet and learn from patients and to becoming a skilled member of the Springfield Medical Centre team.
