Dr Peter Scriven
MBChB (Sheffield 1999) MRCS MPhil MRCGP
Divisional Director Royal Primary Care
I trained in medicine at the University of Sheffield, graduating in 1999. I initially trained as a Surgeon and undertook an extended period of research on how cancers become resistant to chemotherapy drugs.
I left surgery in 2011 to pursue a different work | life balance. I have been working as a GP in the Derbyshire and Yorkshire region for several years. I am happy to see any problems but my areas of interest are gastrointestinal disease (tummy and bowel problems), central sensitivity syndromes (fibromyalgia, CFS), mens health and minor surgery. I also have an interest in app based connected health care.
As Divisional Director I am responsible and accountable for the redevelopment and improvement of Royal Primary Care across Chesterfield and Clay Cross. Presently this means I usually see patient on 2 days of the week and spend the rest of the week leading the redevelopment of Royal Primary Care.
