Practice Team

Dr Ian Pace MB ChB BSc DCH DRCOG DFSRH (Senior Partner)

Born in the North of England, I grew up in Malta and graduated in medicine from the University of Birmingham in 1985 after intercalating a degree in Physiology in 1982. I did my vocational training in the Royal Air Force and worked in a number of RAF locations in the UK and abroad before joining the Galletly Practice in 1993.

My medical interests encompass most areas of General Practice but particularly chronic disease management including diabetes, heart failure, and asthma, minor surgery and medical computing.

I am responsible for the IT infrastructure in the practice and Information Management and I am the Caldicott Guardian. I have two grown-up children and have lived locally since 1988.

Dr Antony Wright MB BS BMedSci, MRCGP (Partner)

I graduated from Newcastle University in 1992 (MBBS, BMedSci). After 12 months of teaching undergraduate medical students, I embarked on a career in surgery. However, in 1995, I decided that General Practice was the career for me.

Interests: I trained to be a General Practitioner in Newcastle and Grantham (MRCGP, 1997) before moving to Bourne in 1997. I have an interest in hypertension, ischaemic heart disease, atrial fibrillation, heart failure and anticoagulation. I am the Practice lead GP for prescribing and the Dispensary.

I am married with three grown-up children and still live locally in Bourne.

Dr Paul Cregor MB ChB MRCGP DGM DoccMed (Partner)

I’m originally from Southend on Sea in Essex. I read Medicine at Sheffield University and qualified in 2002. I worked as a Junior Doctor in Sheffield before joining the Galletly Practice in 2006 and we moved down from Yorkshire.

I’m very interested in GP education. In 2010 I became a GP Trainer and the Practice was awarded GP Training Practice status. We supervise and help Doctors during their GP training so that they can complete their training program and become independent GP’s. In 2017 I became a GP tutor for Cambridge University and we now have medical students at the practice doing their GP training. I’m also a GP appraiser and visit GP’s in their own practice to assess their work.

My medical special interests include Geriatric Medicine, Respiratory Medicine and helping patients

Mr Ian Robinson

Born in Todmorden West Yorkshire, I joined the Practice in March 2006 following a career outside of the health sector. Living locally with my wife and Great Dane “Alfie” I am a life-long support, or is it sufferer, of Burnley Football Club spending more time than I should (according to my wife) following them. Keen in most sports I am also a PADI diver, especially in warm water!

Responsible for all Business and Administrative aspects of the Practice my function as Business Partner is to ensure the smooth and efficient running of services so that my GP colleagues may concentrate on their clinical roles.  Additionally I look to develop the Practice ensuring that we are fit for purpose and at the front edge of service delivery to ensure the people of Bourne and surrounding areas have the best possible care.  In March 2015 I became the founding Chair of Allied Health South Lincolnshire Ltd.  This organisation comprises 15 local practices that have come together to deliver Primary Care Services at scale within South Lincolnshire and we are working closely with local NHS agencies to expand and fully integrate care into our communities.

Dr Alex Mickleburgh MRCGP MBChB BSc(Hons) DCH DfSRH

After doing a degree in Physiology at Newcastle University, I then went on to study Medicine at the University of Warwick. When I qualified in 2009 I moved to north London to start work and it was there that I trained to become a GP. I enjoy all aspects of General Practice and love the variety that the job brings.

I work part time – the rest of the week being spent with my two daughters who keep me pretty busy! When I get the chance, I enjoy running, yoga, baking, and reading. I’m also currently trying to learn how to crochet (but making slow progress!).

I grew up locally, and after 9 years living in London, it’s a real pleasure to be back in the area and working at The Galletly Practice!

Dr Daniela Margaritescu

From there I then went back into working on an acute respiratory ward. My post before coming back in practice nursing was at The hospice in the hospital at Grantham which is the first hospice of its kind in the country. I really enjoyed my end of life care and I still work on the bank at times there at the weekend as I am still passionate about End Of Life Care.

I worked between the ward and Paediatric assessment unit and High dependency care for six years. I also have experience in minor operations as part of a day surgery service for children.

I then took the leap into community and started working as a Practice Nurse at The Galletly Practice, and have done this for a year and a half now and haven’t looked back since!

Sister Caroline Clay

After two successful careers in the Royal Air Force and Information Technology, I decided to opt for a complete career change and become a Nurse. I graduated with a first class BSc (Hons) from the University of Lincoln in August 2018. I have worked as a Practice Nurse Ever since! I joined the Galletly Practice in February 2018 and I am slowly finding my feet as a Treatment Room Nurse. I am also developing my knowledge and experience of Chronic Disease Management.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my young family, wearing myself out at the gym and reading thriller novels.

Sister Michelle Morgan

After almost 13 years in the Ambulance Service, I decided I wanted a new challenge and in the summer off 2014 graduated from Buckinghamshire New University with a BSc (Hons) in Adult Nursing. After graduating I entered the Prison Service. This experience was challenging but provided me with a wealth of experience in providing healthcare often in demanding situations.

In 2015 I decided to build on my experience and made the change to become a General Practice Nurse. I have a keen interest in contraception, health promotion, and anticoagulation. I moved to Bourne 16 months ago with my fiancé Matt along without dog and two cats. I worked in Grantham before joining the Galletly practice in April 2019.

I am always looking to continue my professional development and improve my knowledge and skills and look forward to undertaking the minor illness diploma in the future.
