Dr Denise Lasbury MBChB MRCGP DFFP
Joined 1st January 2014
Born and educated in Truro, I then attended the University of Birmingham,
qualifying in 2002. After completing my studies I was commissioned into the
Royal Army Medical Corps and completed my junior doctor rotations at Derriford
Hospital, Plymouth. I subsequently trained in General Practice and went on to
work in a number of practices in Cyprus, Germany and the UK.
My military career spanned 10 years and included active tours of duty in
Afghanistan and the Balkans providing frontline medical cover to Infantry Units.
I also had the pleasure of exercising in Kenya, Poland, Jordan and more recently
supporting a sailing expedition from the the Falklands Islands to Antigua. My
sense of adventure and love of the sea was recognised by colleagues who invited
me to deputise as lifeboat medical advisor to the Falmouth RNLI.
Since leaving the Army in 2010 I have worked as a locum in local practices and
taught at the Peninsula Medical School whilst my husband Nick returned to work
at Treliske as a microbiologist. During this time our family has grown. First a
hairy addition - Buttons -our much loved spaniel followed by our daughter Emily
who was born in June 2013. We are delighted to be back home in Cornwall and in
our spare time we can be found walking and running the beautiful coast path with
family, friends and Buttons!
The Primary Care setting enables me to provide continuation of care and deal
with both acute and chronic medical problems. I aim to deliver friendly,
patient-centred care, which is, as far as possible, evidence-based. My
professional interests are women's health, family planning and sports injuries.
I am passionate about teaching and will be assisting in the supervision of
medical students as well as training qualified doctors in family planning.
