Georgia Houghton (f)
Nurse Practitioner.
Hi, I'm Georgia and I joined this practice in April '23 having been qualified as a nurse since 2002. I gained my Masters degree as a Nurse Practitioner in June '20 because I wanted to build on my knowledge and competencies that I'd experienced in both primary and secondary care. I have always wanted to be a nurse since aged 13 and feel lucky to work in this role which is so varied, challenging and rewarding. I try to keep active and enjoy outdoor activities with my family so hike in the fells as often as possible with our crazy cocker spaniel!
