Dr Rona Forrest
Primary qualifications: MBChB DCH MRCGP
Qualified: University of Glasgow, 2010
Usual days in the practice: Wed, Fri
I grew up in the west of Scotland and completed my medical and foundation training in Glasgow, before travelling to Australia where I spent 3 years working in Emergency Medicine and enjoying the pace of life and outdoor adventures the southern hemisphere had to offer.
I returned to Scotland for GP training in Edinburgh in 2015 and found myself chasing the beach lifestyle again in beautiful East Lothian. I love the variety each day in General Practice brings and getting to know my patients, their families as well as helping them navigate challenges and support them at all stages of life.
I'm passionate about leading a fit and healthy lifestyle and helping others to do the same. When not in work I love spending time with my young family outdoors or having some down time through practicing yoga, cooking or curling up with a great book.
