I spent my childhood in Enfield, Middlesex, and then moved to Southampton to study Medicine at University. After graduating in 1989 I worked in hospitals in Portsmouth, Basingstoke and Jersey, before completing my General Practice training in Southsea. I joined the Waverley Road Surgery as a full time partner in 1995. I am actively involved in all aspects of Primary Care, and have developed interests in prescribing, minor surgery and asthma. When not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children; I also play badminton and have taken part in the Great South Run a number of times
Dr Amy Durnford
MbCHB (Liverpool) 2005 MRCGP DRCOG DFSRH
I grew up in London moving to Liverpool when I was 18 to study medicine. I qualified in 2005 and later completed my foundation training in the Lake District. I always wanted to be a GP having seen our own GP look after several members of my own family and a further 3 years of general practice training followed in Manchester. After completing training, my husband and I moved to Portsmouth allowing him to enjoy a Portsmouth FC season ticket. I enjoy all aspects of general practice and have an interest in women’s health. When not working I enjoy reading, live comedy and films.
Dr Sarah Reid
BM (Southampton) 1999, MRCGP, MRCP, DRCOG, DFSRH
I grew up in East Sussex before moving to Southampton to study medicine where I qualified in 1999. I then completed a variety of jobs within the region and also had an exciting year working and travelling in New Zealand. On returning to Portsmouth I completed a three year rotation through medical specialities before starting my General Practice training. I completed my training at Salisbury Road Surgery in 2008 and was delighted to remain as a salaried GP. I enjoy all aspects of general medicine but my particular areas of interest are women’s health and elderly medicine. I live locally with my husband, who is an anaesthetist, and our three young children.
Dr Davia Muir
MBBS (Hons), MRCGP
I grew up in Kingston, Jamaica, where I attended medical school at the University of the West Indies, and graduated in 2013. After completing my foundation years, I worked for 3 years as a GP in Kingston, before moving to the UK in 2018. I completed a year as a trust doctor working in Elderly Medicine and General Medicine at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, before starting GP training in 2019. Although I was a GP in Jamaica, I wanted to gain experience doing the training here in the UK to ensure I am up to date with UK guidelines. I completed my GP training in 2022 here at Craneswater Group Practice and have been delighted to continue on working here as a GP post-training. When not working, I enjoy spending my time reading, baking and writing. I have a keen interest in mental health and wellbeing and believe strongly in practicing holistic medicine.
