Dr Susanna Hill, APD (Associate Postgraduate Dean) and Lead for Quality and Assessment for the Peninsula.
She is also a trainer, a partner at Caen Medical Centre, the Macmillan GP Facilitator in North Devon and Macmillan GP advisor for Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly, the Community sub-dean in North Devon for Exeter Medical School and yet always makes time for trainers or trainees needing her advice and input.
Dr Sam Gardner is one of our area APDs (Associate Postgraduate Deans) and a GP Trainer at Wooda Surgery. Sam has been a TPD since 2017 and an APD since 2021 and has lived in Devon for most of her life. She is never happier than when she is walking on the coast path, the moors or standing on top of a mountain.
Dr Simon Mathieson is the other APD and a GP Trainer at Caen Medical Centre. Simon joined the team in 2019 having moved to North Devon in 2017. Always happy when in the water or on a bike Simon is originally from Cornwall so has strong ties to the South West but has spent the last decade practicing medicine both in the UK and overseas.
