About Us

The Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin First 5 Network was formed in 2021 with the aim of addressing the lack of a interaction and networking amongst local First 5s

The network was developed with help from the local clinical commissioning groups .

We have also received support and collaboration from many local clinicians, practices and groups.

The Team

The network is currently managed by Dr Helen Lloyd and Dr Amna Hussain, both First 5s in the area

Hi, welcome to our First 5 website!

A bit about me - I trained in Birmingham then moved to Shropshire where I fell in love with the area and have stayed ever since.

 

I was on the GPVTS training scheme for almost 7 years having had 3 maternity leaves and working part time; I finally qualified in 2020. I now work as a Salaried GP at Stirchley Medical Practice.

 

I'm also a mum to three young boys and we love to explore the Shropshire outdoors together; life can be pretty hectic but fun. I'm always happy to help - any questions just ask.

Hey! My name is Amna :) I completed my medical degree at the University of Liverpool.
Having been brought up in Staffordshire I chose to start my foundation training close-by in Shropshire and have pretty much been working here since!

 

I CCT'd in December 2020 and now work as a locum in Shropshire. Outside of work I love anything to do with the outdoors: hiking, running and bike riding.

 

The sense of community and support during Shropshire GPVTS training was something I was grateful for, and I'm eager to help maintain the feeling of community here in our First 5 Network! If there's anything we can help with please don't hesitate to ask! :)

Thank you for joining/being interested in our network!
