Dr John Ellis
Primary qualifications: Edinburgh (1996) MBChB, DRCOF, MRCGP
Qualified: Edinburgh 1996
Date joined the practice: 2015
I graduated from Edinburgh University in 1996 and completed my GP training in Durham. I moved back to the Lothians in 2014 and became a partner at Harbours Medical Practice in 2015.
I love General Practice because it allows us to really get to know patients and families over a prolonged time. I have an interest in minor surgery including Nexplanon insertions and joint injection. Teaching is something else I really find rewarding and inspiring; I completed my Diploma of Medical Education in 2013.
Outside of medicine I try to keep as active as I can. I play hockey (as much as my old knees can put up with), run, hill walk. I am learning to sail (badly so far).
Usual days in practice: Tuesday (AM), Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
