I love the challenges of medicine and the opportunity to work in partnership with the people I treat. I enjoy caring for children, helping people to become more active as a way to treat health problems, treating muscle, tendon and joint conditions, cardiovascular problems, diabetes, dealing with men's health and exploring positive lifestyle changes.

Having spent several years in hospital paediatrics before training in general practice, I particularly enjoy looking after the health care needs of children and young people. I have an interest in dermatology and completed the Cardiff Diploma in Practical Dermatology. It is exciting to be part of a multidisciplinary team that is forward thinking in new approaches to best support patient care.

Dr Lee Salkeld
BSc MBChB (Bristol 2005) DGM DRCOG MRCGP
I qualified from the University of Bristol in 2005 and have been working in Bristol since then. I have worked in all of the hospitals in the City and completed my GP training in South Gloucestershire. Until March 2013 I worked as a GP locum in Clifton/Redland and in the Bristol Royal Infirmary. General practice is a unique career that I find hugely rewarding. The privilege of caring for patients, the ever changing frontiers of medicine and the close working with colleagues at Whiteladies Medical Group keeps me fully focused on my role as a GP.
Away from the surgery, I enjoy running and reading - when my young family allows!
