Practice Team

Dr Andrew Mellor (3069530)

Partner in the practice since 1989, a GP trainer since 1997. Medical interest include asthma, COPD and migraine. Led in the introduction of the End-of-Life Pathway for the Barnsley area. Involved in the Out-of-Hours service, the Supportive Care Group and commissioning.

Dr Heather J. Smith (3465648)

I qualified as a doctor from Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School in 1990 and then undertook my GP training in Barnsley in the early 90s. I have been a Partner at the practice since 2001.

My interests within the practice include Women's Health and Diabetes. I also fit coils and implants for contraception. I (along with Dr Mellor) am a GP trainer and so help with the training of doctors to become GPs. This is why we usually have one or two GP Registrars in the practice who generally stay with us for 6 months to a year.

My other main interest at the moment seems to be driving my children from one place to another - but this is getting better as they get older!

Outside of work I'm mum to a toddler and spend most of my time entertaining and chasing after him, but when I get chance I like to go to live music events, eat out and take nature walks with my little one!

Dr Jennifer Farrington (7527844)

I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2012 and continued my postgraduate training in South Yorkshire. My final year of GP training was spent at Garland House and I feel very fortunate to have been offered a post as a Salaried GP on the completion of my training in August 2017.
