About me

Hi everyone and thanks for visiting! I’m Liz Jones and I’m a GP at a rural surgery in West Dorset during the week and also work as an emergency GP at weekends. I qualified as a doctor in 2006 at Guys, Kings and St Thomas’ medical school in London and as a GP in 2013. I really enjoy my work and truly believe in the importance of appropriate self care where possible, preventative medicine and looking after our bodies as much as possible which is what I hope this blog will get across

I grew up in West Dorset and am very much a country girl! I love the British countryside and rural life. I have a small allotment where I grow my own fruit and veg for added health benefits and also enjoy stonecarving, long country walks, baking and fitness, especially weightlifting. I’m learning to shoot which I absolutely love and horse ride and am blessed to have the gorgeous Dorset coastline on my doorstep so I can paddle board when the weather is good enough.

I really hope you enjoy this blog, both the country lifestyle posts and the health posts where I aim to write about things which I hope will be of interest, but I am always ready for suggestions!

Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
