About the surgery

Dear Patients,


I would like to update you about the staffing at St Stephen’s House Surgery:

The partners are Dr Lidia Kostuch-Bush and Dr Wesley Bababjews.

Our other GPs are Dr Anna Woodhatch, Dr Laura Fraser (who is returning from maternity leave on 22nd July) and we also have a new GP joining the team. He is Dr Hasan Al-Bahrani who has an interest in Paediatric / Child Health and Dermatology, he will start on 17th June 2024.

We continue to have locum support from Dr Archana Achpilya and Dr Giovanna Horniborook.

In addition we have Ms Saba Zahid, a Physican’s Associate who usually works on a Friday and is supported by the doctors working on Friday. She has been working with us for almost 3 years, has very good knowledge and is a great help. Some of you may have met Mr Danny Keohane, our First Contact Physiotherapist who works at the surgery on Friday only. He is an experienced physiotherapist who supports the GPs and to whom you may be referred directly if either your condition is a sporting injury or if you have one of a number of musculoskeletal conditions he will see without GP assessment first.

Mrs Priscilla Patel our prescribing pharmacist has returned after maternity leave and she is supporting and working with Mrs Demiana Gobran our pharmacist who joined us in April 2023. Together they assist with medication queries, medication reviews and Mrs Patel also see patients with Diabetes.

We continue with our full nursing team of Nurse Gill Bowerman, Nurse Louise Kubli and our two HCAs Christine Edmonds and Denize Goulder-Perks.

We are trying to stream line our reviews of conditions to minimise the number of reminders and texts you receive, thank you for your understanding.

Wishing you all a healthy Spring and Summer!

The Partners
