Dr Louise Gazeley


I joined the University of Leeds School of Medicine in May 2020. I am a joint lead for Placement Innovation and Academic Sub Dean of Year 5 of the MBChB programme.

I completed my undergraduate training in Newcastle and pre-registration house officers posts in Bishop Auckland and Sunderland. Following a year working in Australia I moved to West Yorkshire, where I completed the Bradford Vocational Training Scheme in 2003. I have been a GP in Bradford ever since.

I have worked at Health Education Yorkshire and Humber, where I was responsible for the GP Retained Doctor Scheme. I am a GP Trainer and undergraduate lead tutor.

Here at the University of Leeds, I combine working as a general practitioner with my teaching role in the School of Medicine. I am responsible for undergraduate placements in Primary Care, working with GP tutors throughout the region to deliver high-quality clinical training in Primary Care. As Academic sub-Dean I provide individual support, advice and direction for students, on issues affecting their study and which are likely to impact their progress through the programme. I work in collaboration with the Associate Director of Student Support and the Progress Committee.
