Dr Gareth Cox
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.

Dr Specialist Trainee GP

Doctors wishing to become GPs need to undergo specialist training in General Practice. ST2’s are fully qualified Doctors and will have completed a couple of years training in hospital jobs (known as Foundation trainees, the new name for house officers and senior house officers) before starting on a GP training scheme which lasts a minimum of 3 years.
A GPST 2 is in the 2nd year of their specialist training. They will be known as GP Registrars. They are qualified doctors but will need supervision in the form of advice and guidance from Dr Armitage and the Partners just as trainees in hospital get the same support from Consultants and senior doctors

Mrs Jessie Kazenel
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.
