Dr Jennifer Smith
Jen hails from Lancashire and did her Medical Degree in Glasgow graduating in 1991 which resulted in her love of Scotland. She spent a year abroad working in Australia and completed her GP training in Lanarkshire. Jen did locums for a few years in the North West and was a GP partner near Preston for 9 years. She has been working in dermatology since 1999, as a clinical assistant and then as a GPSI since 2002 and decided to fully embrace this role in 2009, leaving her practice. She did the Cardiff Diploma in 1995 and was one of very few to gain a Distinction in this. She joined South Lakes Dermatology in 2017 and also works for a similar service in the North of the County. She remains a GP close to home and has a special interest in gynae dermatology and works at the local hospital in Preston. She is a mad animal lover and enjoys walking, family time and anything to do with dogs! She loves to travel and is a bit of a thrill seeker having jumped out of a plane twice!!
