Trained at St. Bartholomew's Hospital London, qualifying in 1976. My wife, Mary McMinn, is also a doctor and has been occupied in the company we founded in London, The Fundholders' Support Agency and Consultant Provider Agency. She is the practice manager. We have 3 children; Paul 27, Chris 24, Joanna 19. We have a house in Kings Road, Berkhamsted.

I was born in Sussex and educated at Douai Abbey School, Berkshire. After medical training I worked in the Bart's Professorial Medical Unit in Hackney, then as a Research Fellow at The Whittington Hospital. After I was a registrar at Whipps Cross Hospital I entered into partnership with Dr. Allum & partners in Leytonstone, East London in 1984. I became the lead partner for fundholding and building the new Allum Centre, a large Primary Care Resource Centre. I was the medical officer for Waltham Forest's Unit for Physically Disabled People. Currently I am a clinical tutor at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, so you may find medical students here from time to time. I am on the Health Authority lists for the provision of child health surveillance, minor operations and maternity services.

Dr Janet Crabtree M.R.C.G.P  M.R.C.P is our assistant and she works at the surgery 3 mornings a week. She trained at Barts and qualified in 1984. She did her post graduate training in East London, and was a medical registrar in Reading before doing her G.P training in London. She has two l children.

Dr Omar Rahim BSc (Hons) MBBS (Lon) MRCS (Eng) MRCGP joined us in October and will be seeing patients in 2007

Our shared PMS Dr (currently Dr Sam Kukielka) works at the surgery during leave and study leave.

The Practice is within  West Herts Primary Care Trust's area.

The Practice was part of Dacorum Doctors on Call. This is a co-op of local practices offering out of hours cover from a central surgery at Slippers Hill in Hemel Hempstead. This service ceased altogether by October 2005 and the Primary Care Trust took over out of hours work. From then practices will be forbidden under new NHS arrangements to do their own on-call.  Out of hours is now provided by Harmoni under an NHS contract

The Practice is Personal Medical Services Practice with two other local small practices. We have a different form of NHS contract which pre-dates the new standard GMS contract.

Dr Mary McMinn BSc MRCP is the part-time practice manager
