Dr Karen Thompson
MBBS (1990 London) DRCOG MRCGP
I grew up in Gosforth but trained at King’s College London before coming back to my roots and have lived in Morpeth for over 20 years now.
I love to play netball and touch Rugby (despite the bruises) and I also run a bit (you might see me out there!).
My clinical interests are particularly female health, including family planning and coil fitting, but I enjoy all aspects of general practice.

Dr Hannah Marshall
MBBS (2008 Newcastle) MRCGP
Having worked at Greystoke during my training I re-joined the practice in 2016 as a partner. I teach medical students from Newcastle University at the practice and am very grateful to our patients for their invaluable contribution towards this. I am interested in all areas of medicine but particularly enjoy looking after pregnant women and children.
Dr Graeme Denman
MBBS (2011 Newcastle)
Originally from Glasgow, I studied psychology in Aberdeen, then medicine in Newcastle where I settled to complete my GP training. I rejoined the team at Greystoke Surgery as a partner in 2017, having spent 12 months here as a trainee in 2014. Until recently, I worked as a speciality doctor in paediatric rheumatology at the Great North Children’s Hospital but am now focussed on general practice and my young family (three children under five at the last count). My other work interests include mental health and learning disability, though I see myself very much as a generalist. I also perform joint injections and enjoy medical education. Outside of work and family, my passion is running in the beautiful Northumberland countryside, ideally up at steep hill.
