|Dr Juno Jesuthasan (m)|
MB BS (London 1984) MRCP MRCGP Being with the practice since 1989, I was actually a young man when I first arrived! I have a keen interest in education in all its forms and feel it is the path to great patient care and personal fulfilment. However, I strongly believe that we can only do a great job for you if we have a great team behind us and on that score we feel we are getting stronger every year. I love the job and the patient contact and couldn’t see myself doing anything else - though see below! My interests outside medicine are horse racing, sport, technology, cars and the media including the arts, films, TV and music. In addition to my role at the surgery I am also a Programme Director at the Ipswich GP Training Scheme [which means I am normally not at the practice on Tuesday afternoons], a GP Trainer, a GP Appraiser and a Medical Officer at Newmarket racecourse.

|Dr Christopher Uzokwe (m)|
MB BS (Lagos 1982) MRCP MRCGP I grew up in Nigeria and Manchester where I still have strong family connections. Graduated from Lagos University and spent 7 yrs post graduate training in the north west region of UK before 5 yrs abroad as a Consultant in Emergency Medicine. Moved to Suffolk in 2000. My surname is not really that strange in Nigeria and in Ipswich, I can boast of 5 patients who address me by my surname! Seriously I do not mind, as Christopher is almost as good!! I really enjoy my work in Primary Care especially the variety and diversity that general practice offers. I have a special interest in Minor Operations, Diabetes, General Medicine and sampling different cultures. I do enjoy my football, travelling, supporting Manchester United and watching my son play hockey and rugby. And of course family life! I have recently changed my working pattern, working 3 days a week on a Wednesday, Thursday & Friday.
|Dr Darren West (m)|
MB BS (2001) MRCGP I am the youngest and newest permanent addition to the doctors at Barrack Lane Medical Centre. I trained at the Royal London and St Bartholomew’s Medical School. After qualifying in 2001 I spent a year working in London before deciding to move to Ipswich with my wife. After training at Ipswich hospital for 2 years on the GP Training Scheme, I joined Barrack Lane for my final year’s training. I enjoyed working with the staff and patients here so much I decided to stay on permanently after completing my training in 2005. I have not currently developed any areas of special interest. I am happy to see and offer help and advice to any patients either in person or over the telephone.
