Dr. Shamim Rose

My career began in…
I qualified from Liverpool Medical School in 1990. I taught Anatomy at Liverpool Medical School for a year and spent 5 years in total in Surgical Specialities before diverting to become a GP which I achieved in 1997. I then spent approximately 3 years in Prison Medicine full time and specialised in substance misuse and gained lots of experience in mental health and dual diagnosis. I was responsible (along with the healthcare team) for provision of Primary Care Services in 2 new PFI prisons in Liverpool and Manchester. I then came back into NHS GP world and have been a Principal GP as well as a Salaried GP in Merseyside.

I like coming to work/my role because…
I am fulfilled in my career as a Doctor getting involved in face to face medical management as well as the more strategic Governing Body roles which I have. I am also on the Local Medical Committee elected since 2001 and therefore I see both sides of the coin of commissioning, provision as well as appropriate delegation of responsibility of care between different healthcare environments.

Outside of work I…
I spent my early years in Scotland and Secondary education was in Greater Manchester and came to Liverpool in 2014. I am married to a Military Veteran and have 3 Sons with ASD which means that I am continually occupied. I enjoy meeting up socially with friends and am an avid keep fit person. I attend the GYM daily and this keeps me fit and well. One of my passions is riding on the back of my husband’s Harley Davidson Motorbike participating in biker events.
