Liz joined PMG in January 2019 after moving into the local area from East Grinstead. Liz started her NHS career 20 years ago as an evening receptionist while her daughters were young. She was soon given the opportunity to increase her knowledge and gained valuable experience in all areas of general practice with a special interest in practice finance. In January 2012 Liz was appointed Practice Manager and remained at this practice until she decided to make the move to the Sussex coast – to live her dream owning a home by the sea!
Liz is responsible for the smooth running of the practice - including complaints and compliments - and welcomes feedback about the service we provide. She works every day and is normally available to speak to without pre-booking an appointment. Please ask at reception if you would like to discuss a matter with her.
In her spare time Liz enjoys swimming, walking her energetic young Spaniel and the occasional skiing holiday.
