Dr Arslan Akbar

Salaried GP, GMC 7602384

Hello I am Dr Akbar.

As a newly minted GP, I am dedicated to providing compassionate healthcare to patients of all ages.

I am originally from Kashmir but did all of my training in UK. I love the mix of cases and patients that general practice offers but I have a special interest in dermatology. Driven by a deep commitment to teaching, I love to share knowledge and clinical experience with other healthcare professionals.

With a lifelong love for football, I understand the importance of physical activity in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

I spend my spare time watching sports and exercising/running. I also like to watch movies, whenever I get time.
