|Dr Guy Mitchell|
MB BS MRCGP
Doctor Guy Mitchell joined Pulborough Medical Group as a partner in July 2010.
Dr Mitchell undertook his medical training at St Bartholomews Hospital in London where he also studied for a degree course in Clinical Science. During his 6 years at Barts he also met his wife Wendy, who is an Anaesthetist.
After completing his studies Dr Mitchell then embarked on 6 years of training in surgery, passing his membership of the Royal College of Surgeons. He spent time working in several hospitals including Chichester, Worthing and Perth, Western Australia.
During this time Dr Mitchell's two daughters were born, and he began to consider a career change that would give him more time with his family and more time interacting with patients. He decided to pursue a career in General Practice and undertook his training in Midhurst, becoming a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners in 2008.
Dr Mitchell puts his surgical training to good use in primary care. He is an experienced vasectomy surgeon and a GPSI (specialist gp) in dermatological surgery. He undertakes many of the minor surgical procedures at PMG. He also has an interest in sports medicine and in men's health stemming from his surgical work in urology. He also manages to combine his enjoyment of sport and medicine with additional roles in horse racing and professional rugby.
Outside of work Dr Mitchell puts a lot of energy and focus into his family and sport. He enjoys endurance sports including off-road marathons and triathlons.
|Dr Nikki Tooley|
Dr Tooley joined the practice right at the beginning of 2014 and will become a partner of the practice on Dr Hard’s retirement. Dr. Tooley’s previous posts were in Midhurst and and Felpham. She began her GP training straight after medical school, having studied psychology and sociology at A level, and taking a degree in medical humanities. She is particularly keen to look at a patient’s mind and body together rather than separating them, to try to get the ‘complete picture’, citing as an example “the context of a symptom has a large impact upon a patient’s problem. Put simply, a straight-forward diagnosis of a headache has a very powerful significance depending, for example, on whether the person has lost a relative with a brain cancer or is someone who is a full-time carer struggling with another person’s needs.”
Dr Tooley has wide experience, including Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, family planning, care of the elderly, psychiatry and endocrinology. Her areas of surgical skill include gynaecology, urology, gastro-intestinal and breast surgery. A particular interest is medical acupuncture.

|Dr Eloise Scahill|
Dr Scahill graduated from St George's, University of London in 2007. She then moved to Chichester to undertake her GP training. She has a keen interest in Paediatrics, Women's Health and an enthusiasm for General Practice as a whole. Eloise is also hoping to become involved in medical education for trainee doctors and GPs in the future.
Dr Murphy’s medical school training was at UCL in Bloomsbury where he met his wife, who is also a GP, in Crawley. During his time at UCL Dr Murphy became involved with a group called MedACT, a group highlighting the impact of poverty on health at home and internationally. Dr Murphy was part of a team that hosted the first national MedACT conference in UCL in 1997, with groups from all over the UK attending.
He was also lucky enough to undertake a BSc Degree between his 2nd and 3rd years of medicine, in Neurology, and worked on papers with Prof John O’Keefe on memory systems in the Hippocampus, something for which Prof O’Keefe won the Noble Prize for science in 2014.
Since leaving medical school Dr Murphy has worked all over the country – Harrogate, Truro, Ipswich, Margate, and Frimley Park hospitals as a medic where he specialised in Cardiology, and East Grinstead for the last 11 years as a GP continuing his particular interests in cardiology and respiratory medicine and acute medicine as a whole. Dr Murphy’s specialties are diabetes, endocrinology and he has also undertaken minor operations and joint injection training.
At East Grinstead he led both the QOF (Quality Outcomes Framework) and IT. For the last 5 years Dr Murphy has also sat on the Mid Sussex and Horsham Medicines Management group. It’s fair to say, though, that he is not a ‘meetings’ person and much prefers to be face to face with patients.
Outside of the practice Dr Murphy enjoys spending time with his wife and their two (very energetic) sons. When he has time he likes to go to the gym or go swimming, a skill he only learnt 3 years ago prompted by his sons who were extremely confident in the water. When time allows, he also loves to cook and has taken courses on Thai, French, Spanish and Italian cooking. His other main passion is Batman and he has, much to his wife’s horror, filled the walls of one room in his house with miniatures of every Batmobile ever used in comics or films!
