|Dr Kieron Cooney|
MB BChir FRCGP DRCOG
I joined the practice in 1995 after working as a GP trainee at St Helens practice. I trained at Trinity Hall Cambridge and University College London. I started medicine later in my career after spending some years as Chief Science Officer for Cambridge Surgical Research Unit.
I developed an interest in paediatrics after a number of years working as a paediatric registrar in the 1990s. I have trained ten GP registrars since 1999 and have enjoyed the challenge. I am also an examiner for the Royal College of Practitioners.
My personal interests lie in music and I play the Scottish highland bagpipes. As a highly skilled and proficient piper, I can often be seen at public performances.

MBBS BSc DRCOG MRCGP
I was pleased to join the Practice in March 2015 as a full time partner after working here for the previous two and a half years - initially as a GP registrar and then on a regular GP locum basis.
I did my medical training at Guy's King's and St Thomas' medical school whilst at Kings College London University obtaining my MBBS in 2007. Whilst there I also obtained an Intercalated BSc in Clinical and Molecular Endocrinology.
I initially worked in London hospitals a junior doctor for a couple of years then travelled to New Zealand where I spent 9 months working in various specialities in Rotorua Hospital in North Island. I moved to the Isle of Wight in 2010 to start my GP vocational training and have lived here since. Outside of work, I enjoy going on countryside and coastal walks which the Island is perfect for.
