Dr Jennifer Smith
MBChB DFFP DPD COBC in Acupuncture
Jen hails from Lancashire and did her Medical Degree in Glasgow graduating in 1991 which resulted in her love of Scotland. She spent a year abroad working in Australia and completed her GP training in Lanarkshire.
Jen did locums for a few years in the North West and was a GP partner near Preston for 9 years. She has been working in dermatology since 1999, as a clinical assistant and then as a GPSI since 2002 and decided to fully embrace this role in 2009, leaving her practice.
She did the Cardiff Diploma in 1995 and was one of very few to gain a Distinction in this.
She is married and still lives near Preston to be close to her family. She has a dog and loves spending long walks with him (and hubby) from their caravan near Penrith.
She loves to travel and is a bit of a thrill seeker having jumped out of a plane twice.
She is delighted and honoured to be working with the highly organised Cumbria Medical Services and the friendly, warm, professional dedicated team that work in it.
