Dr Antony Wright MB BS BMedSci, MRCGP (Senior 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

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.

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.
