Dr Carter Singh, Willowbrook Medical Practice

Midlands

Dr Singh cares for 15,000 patients at his practice and he personally consult with over 150 learning disability patients per year at times which are usually outside contracted hours, so making attending the appointments more convenient for these patients.  Carter spends approximately 1hr compared to the usual average ten-minute GP appointment with each one of his learning disability patients, personally devoting his time for their unconditional support and going well beyond the ‘call of duty’. He has served for six years as a Governing Body GP Member of his local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). He works tirelessly in this role to try and optimise the health of his deprived local population.
