Practice Welcomes More New GPs

Hi, I'm Dr Cyriac

I graduated from St Barts and the Royal London medical school in 2012. I completed GP training in the Oxford deanery in 2018. Over the last year I have been working as a GP in Bicester.
Earlier this year my wife and I were blessed with a baby boy and we have recently moved to the local area.
I enjoy the challenges of general practice despite the current political climate. For me nothing beats seeing patients from all walks of life and being able to influence them in positive way. I am particularly interested in lifestyle medicine, where we use lifestyle interventions to help manage, prevent and in some cases reverse chronic disease.

I'm very much looking forward to working at the Swan practice. My hobbies include photography, reading and being outdoors

Dr Cyriac Athappilly

Hello, I'm Dr Hadi
A relatively local boy, I grew up in Milton Keynes and attended Aylesbury Grammar School. I attained my medical degree from King's College London and have recently qualified as a GP under the Oxford deanery. My final year of training has been at the Swan Practice, and I'm delighted to have been given the opportunity to continue working here.
In my spare time I enjoy motorcycling, flying, football and travelling; with as much music mixed in there as possible!

NHS Primary Care Networks

Since the NHS was created in 1948, the population has grown and people are living longer. Many people are living with long term conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, or suffer with mental health issues and may need to access their local health services more often.
To meet these needs, practices have begun working together and with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local areas in primary care networks.

Primary care networks build on the core of current primary care services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care.
Primary care networks will be based on GP registered lists, typically serving natural communities.  They should be small enough to provide the personal care valued by both patients and GPs, but large enough to have impact and economies of scale through better collaboration between practices and others in the local health and social care system.

The Swan Practice is part of the North Bucks Primary Care Network, who aim to provide the best possible care for patients in the north Bucks area.
