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 never imagined being able to open up and discuss so deeply my early life abuse, held back by embarrassment and fear, with Dr Myskow – for the first time ever – I felt completely safe and supported; not judged or disbelieved on any level. I would say she genuinely cares and has helped me immensely”View more testimonials
