Liz Lee working on Cradle to GraveDr Liz Lee qualified from St Bartholomew’s Hospital London in 1981. She trained and worked as a general practitioner in London and since 1995 in Bristol. From 1986 to 1995 she was a Forensic Medical Examiner for the Metropolitan Police and Somerset & Avon Police. Liz’s areas of special interest in medicine are cancer and end of life care and she has taken an active role in supporting people who wish to die at home. Her book ‘In Your Own Time; a guide for patients and their carers facing terminal illness’ is published by Oxford University Press.

“Since 1995 I have been a partner at Horfield Health Centre. We are a practice that values and promotes the skills of the generalist rather than the specialist doctor and this coupled with a system of personal lists allows us to offer continuity of care to our own patients. I have been the GP for many of my patients for nearly 20 years and aim to deliver high quality patient centered care with an emphasis on shared decision making between patient and doctor.”

In 2013 Liz featured in the BBC Two series ‘Keeping Britain Alive: The NHS in a Day’.
