GP TEAM

Dr John Havard

Dr John HavardI qualified from the Royal Free Hospital in London in 1982 and have been a GP in Saxmundham since 1986. My particular interest is medical innovation and have worked on projects as diverse as InstantCare to prevent hospital admissions and Facelook to try to tackle social isolation using Skype. I am currently trying to develop a new indwelling urinary catheter to replace the Foley which was designed in 1937.

Dr Gareth Richards

Dr Gareth RichardsI qualified at The Royal Free Hospital in London in 1984 and after becoming fully registered I trained in anaesthesia at Colchester and the Royal London Hospitals but decided that General Practice was more interesting, so far I have been proved right!

I was a partner at the Constable Country Medical Practice in East Bergholt for 12 years before leaving to become Director of Primary Care initially at Central Suffolk PCT and then East Suffolk PCT. I realised that I missed General Practice and was lucky enough to become a partner at Saxmundham Health in 2008.

In my free time I breed sheep and ride so I was honoured to be selected as a doctor for the 2012 London Olympics, dealing with fallen riders at the Equestrian events at Greenwich Park and very grateful to my partners for letting me participate.

I also have an interest in Minor Surgery & Joint Injections and usually have a monthly Minor Ops list dealing with lumps and bumps.
