Dr Heather Watson graduated from Edinburgh University in 1998. Having initially worked in Scotland, she moved to London to pursue her career in Paediatrics at Guy's and St Thomas Hospital, before choosing to become a GP.
She works full-time as a partner at Balham Park Surgery, which was featured on the Channel 5 documentary "GPs Behind Closed Doors" in 2016. This is a large dynamic practice in south west London. She enjoys the variety of general practice, including dermatology, mental health, contraception, muskuloskeletal problems and more.
In addition to her clinical work, she is a GP tutor for medical students from St George's Hospital, and is a GP appraiser in Wandsworth. She has also combined her medical skills with her love of travelling, and has been the medic for several charity expeditions abroad including summiting Mount Kilimanjaro.
She is a good listener, and will try to help people with their health problems, however big or small.
