Dr John Havard MBBS, FRCGP, DRCOG, FPCert
I 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 Mike Hamblyn MBBS, MRCGP, DFFP
After an extended educational pre-amble gaining a BA in Geography at Hull University in 1992 (one of the England’s three greatest Universities alongside Oxford and Cambridge), I qualified in Medicine from University College London Medical School in 1998. I joined Saxmundham Health in 2002. Beyond my Medical role at Saxmundham I am also Safeguarding Lead for both children and adults. I also have an interest in Medical Education having trained Medical Students and Doctors.
Outside of work I have a busy family life which doesn’t leave much time for anything else.
Sadly my Geography knowledge is relegated to being a specialist subject on Quiz Night which, as Dr Havard will attest, usually goes very badly!
Dr Gareth Richards MBBS
I 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.
Dr Adam Mowles BMedSci BMBS MRCGP
I qualified at the University of Nottingham in 1992. I moved back to my home county of Suffolk for my GP training based at Ipswich Hospital. After 15 years as a Partner at an Ipswich surgery, I joined the team at Saxmundham Health in 2015.
Away from the job, I enjoy spending time on the Suffolk coast with my family. I spend (too much) time listening to music, at Snape and elsewhere.
Dr Jessica Milton MBBS MBChB BSc DRCOG DFFP
I qualified in 2000 at Liverpool University medical school.
I joined Saxmundham surgery in 2015. Prior to this I worked in Ipswich.
I have special interests in Womens health, family planning, paediatrics and Dermatology.
Outside of work I am a mum to 3 young children and and I enjoy running, cycling and cooking for my friends and family.
