Dr Anisha Morjaria is the newest GP Partner to join Lakeside's Corby team and says it is like joining a family. She is relatively newly qualified and decided to become a Partner within a year of joining the practice as a salaried GP.
She said: 'As I did my GP training during the Covid era I didn't get the traditional team atmosphere, so moved from practice to practice to find one which felt like family. I feel really settled here, so, even though I am relatively newly qualified, I applied for Partnership.'
Dr Morjaria comes from a 'medically orientated' background. 'My parents are pharmacists and lots of family and friends are doctors. I was familiar with pharmacies throughout my childhood and became a doctor as I wanted to be on the other side, making diagnoses and putting all of the pieces together. I absolute love it.'
Her specialisms include ENT, dermatology and working with children, particularly around mental health: 'I've done my dermoscopy diploma so hopefully I can help with reducing the number of hospital referrals. I have created a good rapport with patients and have had a lot of lovely feedback with cards and letters. As Lakeside is such a large partnership there are many positives to joining. It is innovative and progressive, so I am looking forward to becoming involved in the Partnership side, as well as meeting colleagues from different practices across the Partnership.'
