GP Delegate - Bridgwater Bay Commissioning Locality and interim COG Chair
Dr Stephen Gardiner trained in Cambridge and London and has been a GP at East Quay Medical Centre in Bridgwater since 1991.
He has previously been a Somerset Local Medical Committee representative and GP trainer and is a current Clinical Supervisor for Foundation Year and ST1 doctors. In the past he has been very involved in setting up the first of the GP out-of-hours co-operatives and numerous novel practice-based services. In 1999 he was awarded FRCGP by assessment.
He is a committed generalist who believes strongly in personal, holistic care for his patients. He has always been prepared to speak out on issues which concern him and hopes to bring his enthusiasm, experience and realism to the role of Clinical Operations Group delegate.
