Dr Gareth Cox
I was born in Warrington and after spending 10 years living in Padgate, moved to Grappenhall where I attended Lymm high school. I completed my medical training at Liverpool University, after this I worked in Southport hospital for 3 years, it was here I decided my love was for General Practice, which saw me move back to Warrington to work as a GP in Stockton Heath.
I have now worked in General Practice for 10 years. Over the years I have developed interests in both care of the elderly and musculoskeletal/sports medicine.
Outside of work I have a busy family life with two young children and 3 black Labradors (I must be mad!).
I am a lifelong Manchester United supporter and enjoy following the ups and downs of the Warrington Wolves. I have also been known to play tennis and golf when allowed!
Dr Sharmila Armitage
Women's Health and Family Planning
I grew up in South Wales and moved to London to complete my medical training at St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School. I knew I wanted to be a GP from the outset so did vocational training at West Middlesex Hospital. Following this we moved up North and settled in Lymm. I was initially a salaried GP in Preston for a year and then in Leigh for the past 13 years.
During this time I developed an interest in women’s health and family planning. I am qualified to fit both coils and implants. I also have an interest in palliative care and, being a GP trainer, in medical education.
As well as sessions in surgery I have a role as Clinical Director GP Out of Hours based in Wigan.
When not at work I enjoy choir, dance and my two teenage daughters keep me busy!
Dr Specialist Trainee GP
Trainee GPs/ Pre-Registration House Officers
Doctors wishing to become GPs need to undergo specialist training in General Practice. ST2’s are fully qualified Doctors and will have completed a couple of years training in hospital jobs (known as Foundation trainees, the new name for house officers and senior house officers) before starting on a GP training scheme which lasts a minimum of 3 years.
A GPST 2 is in the 2nd year of their specialist training. They will be known as GP Registrars. They are qualified doctors but will need supervision in the form of advice and guidance from Dr Armitage and the Partners just as trainees in hospital get the same support from Consultants and senior doctors

Mr Jimmy Cheung
Hello my name is Jimmy Cheung. Please call me Jim.
I am the Clinical Prescribing Pharmacist working at your surgery. I have been a qualified Pharmacist for over 15 years starting my career in hospital and then the last 6 years in General Practice and the community.
My family and I have been living in Warrington for over 10 years and working in the community helping the residents of our town has been an absolute pleasure and my most rewarding journey of my career.
I really enjoy dealing with all types of medicine reviews and queries with patients both face to face and by telephone. This enables me to help my colleagues at the surgery as well as free up GP and Nurse Practitioner appointments. My main love though is to help patients to get the most from their medicines, to understand them better, and to be able to answer any specific questions about them.
At the same time I can also prescribe and undertake some basic clinical examinations to monitor whether the treatment is the best that it can be, or if any changes can be made to get even better results from the medicines, and support patients to manage their conditions themselves.
I love working in tandem with all GPs, Nurses and Practice staff and can liaise closely on your behalf with other healthcare providers outside the surgery, including our hospital colleagues and your Community Pharmacy.
Thank you all in advance for welcoming me to the Springfield Medical Centre family.
