MBBS University of Newcastle Upon Tyne 2006, BMedSci (Hons), MRCGP, DRCOG, DFSRH, PGCE
After graduating from medical school in 2006 I returned to Huddersfield to complete my GP training. During this time I worked at Kirkburton as a registrar, and then spent 3 years working as a GP in Halifax. I was delighted to be invited to return to Kirkburton in 2015.
I have been a GP trainer since the completion of my Postgraduate Certificate in Primary Care Education (PGCE) in 2015. When I am not working at the practice I work as one of the Training Programme Directors for the local GP training scheme.
I enjoy the variety which General Practice presents, however my particular clinical interests are contraceptive and sexual health, woman and children's health. I am trained to fit and remove contraceptive implants and coils.
|Dr R Schatzberger (f)|
MB.ChB (2009) MRCP MRCGP
After qualifying as a doctor from the University of Leicester, I moved back to my home town of Sheffield in 2009 where I undertook postgraduate training in general medicine. Having initially sub-specialised in genitourinary medicine and gained membership of the Royal College of Physicians in 2013, I decided to switch to general practice, and completed my training in 2019. I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to join the staff at Kirkburton Health Centre, and look forward to developing a special interest in contraception, and teaching the medical students attached to the practice.

I also worked one session a week in the Children's Accident & Emergency Department. I relocated to Yorkshire in 2015 and initially worked as a locum in and around Huddersfield & Leeds.
