Leora Harverd has been a Principal GP at the practice since 1998 working very closely with Dr Karen Grossmark.
'The systems in the NHS are forever changing but the essence of looking after our patients is what matters to us the most. We are working through challenging times at present and value the support our patients give us. The practice is busier than ever and we are very fortunate to work with an excellent management and reception team. We take all feedback be it positive or negative from patients very seriously and aim to make improvements accordingly. I love coming to work everyday and hopefully have another 2 decades of fulfilling professional years still at Temple Fortune Health Centre.'
Dr Karen Grossmark joined this practice in 1992. She has been a partner for the last twenty years. She qualified at the Middlesex Hospital, London in 1987.
'The NHS has changed several times over the last two decades but the doctor patient relationship remains at the cornerstone of our profession. I love my job and feel so privileged to have such wonderful colleagues and staff working with me. In my spare time I look after my four children, enjoy dancing, swimming and recently taken up boxing lessons.'
'I have 19 years of clinical experience working in hospitals and General Practice.
I trained in Nursing (RGN) at St George's & Roehampton College of Health Studies and obtained a BSc (Hons) at Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College. I passed my Nurse Prescribing qualification at Buckinghamshire New University and hold an International Therapy Examination in Diet and Nutrition.
I have worked at the Temple Fortune Clinic (PHGH Doctors) since 2004.
I love to travel to different parts of the world, seeing different cultures, experiencing different foods and meeting new people.'
My Name is Natasha Biddy. I am a trainee practice nurse. I commenced my training with PHGH Doctors at the end of January. The training programme is a yearlong and I have the pleasure of being mentored by Nurse Sheba. I have many skills to learn within the year but I have the support from every one of the PHGH team. At present I can see patients who need dietary advice for raised cholesterol, diabetes advice, BP checks and patients who need swabs. The majority of my clinics are open for New Patient Medicals which gives me the opportunity to meet new patients. As the year progresses so will my competencies enabling me to see and support patients with a verity of medical matters. I am enjoying my time here so far and look forward to getting to know our patients better.
I qualified as a Phlebotomist in 2010 and have been performing blood tests here at the surgery ever since. I started working with PHGH Doctors in 2004. Starting as a receptionist I then went on to become senior receptionist and did this alongside blood taking. I have seen many changes along the way.
In January 2017 the opportunity came up to become a phlebotomist and Health Care assistant full time. As I love to learn new skills I enjoy this role very much. I am currently able to see patients for Blood tests, New Patient Medicals, Urine Dip tests, Blood Pressure and Stop smoking appointments.

I qualified as a pharmacist from Portsmouth University in 1990 and have had a variety of experience in the community pharmacy sector over my career. I have managed or supported pharmacy businesses in the countryside, central London, local high streets and in the USA. I was superintendent pharmacist for Selfridges Department store, Oxford Street for 2 years.
I have experience in conventional and herbal medicines and have a specific interest in asthma and anticoagulation.
I am a qualified mentor for the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and was a pre-registration pharmacist tutor. I also sit on a local committee for the National Research Ethics Service; ensuring future planned research in medicine is safe and ethical for participants. We cover clinical trials, new devices, dressings and qualitative research proposals.
I am looking forward to being an integral part of the PHGH team supporting the doctors in the pharmaceutical care of their patients.
I am available to perform medication reviews for patients which can be booked at reception for those wanting to discuss their use and concerns of medications they are prescribed.
When not at work I like to travel, sew, play the flute and spend time with my family. I also carry out a number of voluntary roles within the local community.
