FGDP Yorkshire Board Members

I graduated from Newcastle in 2016 and have really enjoyed working with FGDP Yorkshire since graduating. I gained my MJDF qualification in 2018 and currently work in General Practice and the Community Dental Services. I was previously responsible for organising events for FGDP Yorkshire and I hope to continue the success of the division in my new role as Director.
