Dr Philippa (Pippa) Stables (f)  GP Partner

MB ChB (Bristol 1988) DCH MRCGP

I have been a GP since 1992, with an interest in teaching and training. I love the variety of general practice and am happy to see any problems- no, really I am! I have (too many) children, so I understand how families work and I enjoy seeing children. My hobbies are riding, gardening, camping and generally being out of doors.

Dr Senthiru (Chenda) Sivaloganathan (f)  GP Partner


As a medical student I was fascinated by the diversity and breadth of General Practice. I have travelled widely, have an international background and I am multilingual, being fluent in Tamil, Singhala and Russian. Though I enjoy the variety and challenges that General Practice offers, I have special interests in Gynaecology , Sexual Health, Paediatrics and Contraception (I offer contraceptive implants & coils). I love music, especially Indian Classical music and have performed in many cultural musical programmes. I have also learnt & performed Bharatanatyam which is a form of South Indian classical dance. My other interests are Interior design/decor and gardening.
