The world of medicine is one of facts and formulae, so we thought it a good idea to balance things out in the YourGP team by bringing in someone whose background was a little more creative. Someone who’s certainly not lacking in this area is Miriam Figueras who joins us as our Healthcare Assistant.
Miriam hails from Barcelona where she worked as a graphic designer and illustrator. After exploring Edinburgh’s world-class art galleries, she soon felt right at home here in the capital. Since her move to the UK, Miriam felt compelled to take her career in a new direction; her goal was to learn new skills and fill her days with a variety of rewarding, purposeful tasks, and that’s exactly how she spends her time at the clinic. Miriam plays a vital role assisting the YourGP doctors and nurses, and adding a little of her own inspiring creative edge to life in the clinic!
“I needed a quick appointment as I was leaving for America. The doctor listened and allayed any concerns. It was a pleasure to talk to a doctor who wasn't watching the clock and not paying attention to me. I left confident that if a problem arose I would be able to deal with it until I arrived home. The experience left me feeling confident and positive.”View more testimonials
