He first joined as a registrar in 2011 and over the years he has returned in different roles, and applied for Partnership as he likes the patients, colleagues and location.
Dr Ali always wanted the stability and career pathway that a medical career can bring and for him, this first Partnership role, is the next logical step: 'The main difference in stepping into Partnership is getting to know the business in more depth than maybe I would have as a salaried GP. Then you can see what is working and where things can be adapted or changed for the benefit of patients and colleagues. It has also meant that I know more about what our very hard-working staff do and how they help keep the practice running smoothly.
'Becoming a Partner has given me a new impetus and fresh viewpoint. Hereward patients are quite understanding of the challenges that the NHS is facing and so it was the right choice to become a partner here and continue seeing patients who already know me. I also get on really well with the staff and look forward to continuing to work with the amazing team of GP Partners here.'
