Dr. Hilary Fox FRCGP

Clinical Director

Having been a Rutland GP for 19 years, I work clinically one day a week at Market Overton Surgery. My role in the PCN is to bring the practices together with our patients and local partners,  making Rutland the healthiest place to live, and the best place to work for the NHS, or to be an NHS patient.

Mike Cumming

MSK First Contact Practitioner

I commenced my role with Rutland PCN as MSK First Contact Practitioner in June 2020. I am a specialist physiotherapist with advanced skills to allow expert assessment, diagnosis and first line treatment for all musculoskeletal concerns. A main aim of the mine is to ensure that a patient can speak with the most appropriately skilled healthcare professional for their problem as a first point of contact. If you have a problem with your neck, back, bones, joints or muscles then the FCP service would be able to help you.
