Dr Sally Aston [Tuesdays and Fridays]  I qualified from Bristol University medical school in 2006 and then worked in hospitals in Torquay and Gloucester before training as a GP in Taunton. I moved to the Bristol area in 2011 and have worked as a GP locum in and around Bristol since. In my spare time I love to get out into the fresh air with my husband and two young daughters.

Dr Karen Houghton
[Mondays and Wednesdays] I graduated from Liverpool University and did my GP training in the West Midlands, New Zealand and Bristol. I have worked as a General Practitioner in Bristol for 25 years and enjoy the variety of clinical work afforded by family medicine. My particular interest is child health. Outside work I enjoy time with my family and the ever changing challenge of raising teenagers! I love reading, skiing, cycling, and watching comedy. A sunny day on my bike, with a friend and a stop for a cup of tea with a view, is hard to beat.
