Dr. Carmen Simo
Dr Simo qualified in Spain (LMS, iGP (Valencia)) and worked there until invited to come to the UK on an International Recruitment Scheme 18 years ago; an already very experienced GP, having worked in multiple surgeries across Liverpool and Knowsley. She became Senior Partner of the practice in 2016 having held the position of GP assistant first, following the retirement of Dr Brendan Moran on 31/10/17 and Dr Thomas Kinloch on 31/03/2019. She speaks three languages (Spanish, Italian and English). She has one son and likes to spend her valuable time with him and her family.
(MBChB, MRCS, MRCGP, DOHNS) qualified from Liverpool Medical School in 2002 and has been working as a GP in practices across Knowsley since 2009, with over a decade’s experience as a GP partner. He remembers very well being a medical student at this practice for a year under the tutelage of Drs Kinloch and Moran in 2000/2001. He was therefore especially pleased to be able to rejoin the surgery as a Partner working alongside Dr Simo in December 2022. His special interests comprise Ear, Nose and Throat, Men’s Health and Joint Injections. He has a teenage son and daughter at home and enjoys running and cycling in his free time.
Dr Simo and Dr Wijesinghe are also assisted by Practice Nurse, Julie Daly.
