Sheepcot Medical Centre, 6 Cunningham Way, Watford, Herts, WD25 7NLTel: 01923 672451
Trained at Kings College Hospital (KCH)
Doctor Jackson worked with consultants at KCH with an interest in respiratory medicine and continued with this interest into his GP training at Luton & Dunstable Hospital before joining SMC in 1983.
Primary care has been his interest since then and Sheepcot Medical Centre was extended while at 80 Sheepcot Lane and then after many years of searching a new purpose built surgery was built for SMC in 2015.
This new surgery has enabled SMC to develop as a training centre for medical students, doctors and nurses and Dr Jackson hopes that our trainees will be encouraged to move into general practice encouraged by their experience at SMC.
He is extremely proud of the new premises and the excellent staff that have helped in achieving what he feels is a showpiece NHS practice. Team spirit is so important and is being developed all the time.
In his spare time he is a keen squash player having played against most of the Hertfordshire club teams over the years.
More recently he has started to play more golf but time is an ongoing problem.
Although he works and plays very hard he is very close to all of his family and enjoys travelling especially to the South Of France.
