Dr Fiona Gelder
Primary qualifications: MBBS MRCGP DRCOG MSc Qualified London 1986
Specialises in: Safeguarding
Special interests: Mental Health
I was brought up in Oxford and left to go to medical school at University College London, where I qualified in 1986. After completing my GP training scheme at St Thomas’s Hospital , I joined the department of General Practice as Lecturer in 1990 and split my time between patient care , undergraduate teaching and research. I gained a Master’s degree in General Practice in 1992 which really shaped how I work as a doctor. After starting a family, I moved to the Hurley Clinic in London to work more part time, and to concentrate on patient care- working there for a further 17 years before we moved back to Oxford. I was delighted to join Bartlemas Surgery as a Partner in 2014 and to be working in vibrant East Oxford. I have an interest in women’s health, mental health issues and the care of patients towards the end of their lives. I am the practice OXFED lead. Outside of work, I enjoy travelling with my husband, children or friends, looking after our dogs, gardening and yoga. Our three daughters are now grown up, so family time together is especially precious.
Dr Gelder sees patients Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and is the practice Safeguarding lead.
