Dr Tom York is a practicing GP, based in Crossharbour. Tom grew up in Lancaster with his parents – his mum, a nurse, and his dad, a chemist. Tom qualified as a Doctor aged 23, and started five years of training to become a General Practitioner, qualifying as a GP aged 28.
Tom decided to become a GP as he saw the attraction of being a health generalist – knowing about all areas of the body, health and medicine.
Tom has practiced as a GP for four years to date and in 2016, he joined GPDQ, the UK’s first doctor-on-demand app for GP home visits. Tom opts to see patients via GPDQ outside of his contracted full-time NHS GP role. Tom is extremely passionate about the NHS and the important role it plays in the UK. Tom’s decision to see patients via GPDQ bookings is to give him even more face to face time with patients who need to see a doctor in their own environment, and without the wait.
