|Dr Aigbokhai Ohiwerei (m)|
Qualifications: BSc (Hons) (Univ of London 2000), BM (Southampton 2005), MSc (LHWB) (Portsmouth 2014) MRCGP (2011), DRCOG (2011), DFFP (2011)
Background: Following my first degree in Genetics and Microbiology at Queen Marys College in London, I went on to study medicine at Southampton.
On completing my medical degree and prior to starting my training as a GP, I worked for many years at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth where I developed a firm grounding in several medical specialities.
I completed my GP training in Wessex and joined the practice in August 2011 as an Associate GP.
Interests: I have particular interests in ENT, Preventive healthcare and Men’s Health. I am also the Learning disability lead at the practice.
When I am not in the practice, my role as one of the Clinical Leads for Out of Hours means I am heavily involved in the provision of the local Out of Hours Service. I also work at FACE ENT where I am part of the team of clinicians who provide local Ear Nose and Throat services for patients in the community.
Hobbies: Outside of work I enjoy spending quality time with my two young children and my partner. I am a big jazz fan and enjoy listening to the likes of Miles Davis whilst working on my allotment or cooking up a storm for my family.
As well as personal fitness, I enjoy running and have taken part in the Great South Run each year since 2011, running either for the MS Society or for the charity ‘Get Kids Going!, which helps children with disabilities partake in sport. I hope to complete a marathon in the next few years!
