Doctors

Dr Marion Steiner

My training was at Guy’s Hospital, London, qualifying in 1985. I always wanted to be a family doctor and what I enjoy most is listening to patients' stories. I joined the practice in 1996, and am involved in teaching medical students and overseeing prescribing, working closely with our practice pharmacist. I am interested in the connection between creativity and health, and complimentary therapies, using acupuncture for some musculoskeletal problems. I am also a medical officer at Badminton School, and work sessions for the Brisdoc out-of-hours service.

Dr Matthew Goldie

I grew up in Bristol and have been with the practice since 2002. I trained in London and did most of my hospital jobs in the London area. I look after practice safety and efficiency including IT. I train doctors to become GPs as well as teaching medical students within the practice. I am a keen walker and cyclist and also play in a local orchestra.

Dr Janette Treagust

I qualified as a doctor in 1988 after training at University College London and have lived and worked in Bristol since 1990. I trained as a GP in 1992 and joined the practice in 2001. As well as being trained as a GP I am also accredited as a public health doctor and still have a strong interest in how people can be helped to keep themselves healthy, both at an individual and community level. I am a firm believer in the importance of providing good quality NHS care through GP services.

Dr Louise Apthorpe

I trained in Bristol and did some of my hospital jobs locally. I have also worked on the South Coast and in Australia. I’m interested in self-care and complementary medicine. I’m currently the medical advisor to St Monica Trust and care for their two nursing homes in the area. I play in a local orchestra and also enjoy doing several sports.

Dr Kirsty Alexander

I came to medicine late in life having done a whole range of other jobs. I trained in Bristol and I am both a GP and  Consultant in Public Health. I really enjoy seeing people in the context of their whole lives and  I enjoy all clinical medicine across the whole life course from cradle to grave! My preference is to work alongside people so that they retain control of their own health and well being , and of any care they require, as much as possible. I am also keen to ensure that we have good quality services for those in need in our community- and that local folk feel able to shape these so I run our Patient Group and I am involved in our Bristol North & West Locality Commissioning Group. I have a keen interest in teaching and training. I am married with two grown up daughters and can be found most Saturdays, with the dog, shoogling sedately round the Downs to help beat the southerly slide..

Dr Helen Leigh

GP Partner at Southmead & Henbury Family Practice.

Dr Melanie Mackintosh

I trained in Bristol and after spending some time in Africa and then training to be a GP in North Wales, I came back to Bristol to work in this practice in 1994. I enjoy getting to know people in the context of their home and families and this aspect of general practice gets better the longer I have worked in Henbury. I am interested in complementary medicine and how diet, exercise and relaxation can help to prevent ill-health. I teach medical students in the surgery and at the University.
