Born and educated in Edinburgh, Dr Clara Russell completed her medical and GP training in Newcastle before returning home in 2007. She now works as an associate GP at YourGP and a Salaried GP in an NHS practice.
Clara passionately believes that it’s important to take the time to listen to a patient’s concerns to ensure they feel heard and understood. She also feels it is vitally important to work together to ensure a successful outcome for the patient.
Dr Russell also has a strong interest in cosmetic dermatology having taken further postgraduate study and practical training in London. “I enjoy this as I feel health, feeling and looking good are part of a holistic process,” she says.
Recently married she lives in Edinburgh’s busy West End, enjoys reading biographies, attempts cooking and goes to the gym in her spare time.
“I took immediately to Dr Russell’s quiet manner. Her welcoming smile and obvious experience made me feel in safe hands. Other family members are now patients of Dr Russell because of my positive experience and wonderful outcome.”View more testimonials
