The GPs & Partners

Mrs Kathryn Kyle BSc Hon Nursing studies Practice Manager Partner

I grew up in a small rural village in the Shropshire hills and went to University in 1993 studying nursing at the Queen Elizabeth Medical Centre and the University of Birmingham. Once qualified I remained in Birmingham working at Selly Oak Hospital emergency admissions unit which provided an excellent foundation following my nurse training.

My wanderlust overcame me in 1998 and I headed off to Australia working in tropical Queensland on a surgical ward for a year and travelling around Australia whenever not on duty. I travelled through China, south East Asia, India, Nepal and Africa before heading back out to Australia to work in the rather more cosmopolitan Sydney. When not on the busy Royal North Shore wards, cafe culture, beach life and watching the second best Olympic Games passed the time happily.

In 2001 I returned home to work in Cheltenham General Hospital gaining experience as a ward sister, managing a 30 bedded medical ward with a specialist interest in Respiratory medicine. This is where my skills for managing and developing good teams and using resources effectively came to the fore.

I met my husband in 2001, who is a consultant Rheumatologist. We moved to Devon in 2004 and now have three energetic sons and are happily settled in our North Devon home near to Barnstaple.

In 2007 I joined the Dulverton Medical Practice at Trumpington House and enjoyed the challenge of co-ordinating the move to Exmoor Medical Centre creating with the help of a fantastic team an exceptional environment for the delivery of medical care to the patients.

When not at work or racing around after my small boys, I like to compete in local long distance running races especially ones with coastal views as it is still a novelty after my land locked Shropshire beginnings.

 

Dr Peter Byass MBChB MRCGP I graduated from Leeds University in 2005 and worked in the West Yorkshire area doing different medical and surgical jobs before starting a Psychiatry rotation. Gradually the penny dropped that General Practice (and not psychiatry) might be the career for me and after making the change in 2011 I have never looked back.

My roots are in East Yorkshire and having grown up in the countryside (those David Hockney paintings evoke it well) it is a pleasure to work in such a beautiful and rural area as Exmoor.

When not working I enjoy gardening, tending to our chickens and days out with my family.

 

Dr Kelsey Boddington MBBCh Hons MRCGP

I grew up in a small village on the edge of Exmoor. After completing my GCSEs at South Molton Community College, I was offered a full scholarship to attend Lester B. Pearson United World College of the Pacific to complete the International Baccalaureate. I then took a unique opportunity to complete a pilot gap year programme affiliated with the college, spending six months in Uganda and then six months in a small Inuit community in the Northwest Territories of Canada. My time in Canada and Africa was full of eye opening experiences enriched with diverse cultural experiences. It also gave me an important appreciation of my local community that I had left behind in Devon.

In 2003, I returned to the UK to attend Cardiff University to complete a six year medical degree. I took up rowing for the University team for some of that time and thoroughly enjoyed living and studying all over Wales. I was extremely lucky to have been offered an opportunity by Drs Berger and Bird to work in reception for the surgery during my summer holidays throughout my medical degree. The summers at Trumpington House gave me an invaluable exposure to the administrative side of General Practice and inspired my postgraduate pursuit of Family Medicine.

On graduating in 2009, I returned to North Devon to work as a junior doctor. I worked in various specialities in North Devon District Hospital before embarking on my General Practice training in 2011. In August 2014, much to my delight, I returned to Exmoor Medical Centre to complete the GP Vocational Training Scheme and qualified in August 2016.

My husband works as an Agronomist in the local area. We are blessed with two girls who keep us very busy! We live near South Molton and strive to become self-sufficient with a variety of animals and a very rugged vegetable patch! My current hobbies include running and playing the piano when time allows!
