Dr Jeltje Danhof (f)

I studied Theology and Medicine in The Netherlands and trained to become an obstetrician after medical school. I worked for MSF (Doctors Without Borders) for four years and after that I decided to retrain as a GP in rural Scotland whilst finishing a Masters of Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. At the moment I work as rural GP on the Isle of Coll and the Isle of Unst. 

My areas of interest are women's health, public health and emergency medicine. 

In my free time I'd like to go walking and wild camping together with my boyfriend and Labrador.

Dr Graham Johnson (m)

Dr Graham Johnson hails from south west England and was formerly senior partner in a large surgery down there. Previously a military doctor, he has experience of working on his own in more remote settings. He has thoroughly enjoyed his first year of practising on Unst and looks forward with enthusiasm to this next phase of his career!

 

Dr Helen Willows

Hello. Thank you for welcoming me to Unst.  I divide my year into working in Shropshire and working in the Scottish Highlands and Islands. The Scottish work is mainly on Unst now as I thoroughly enjoy my time here.

I have been a GP  for over 30 years and during this time I have also been a trainer for GPs, and a teacher at Keele Medical School for medical students. Before doing medicine I worked for the pharmaceutical industry in London, and before that I worked for the tobacco industry in Brussels, Belgium.

I am married. I have two children, five stepchildren and eight grandchildren who are scattered around the world.

My main interests are photography, gardening and reading. My husband and I like adventures and cycled Lands End to John o Groats in 2017.

My husband is called Keith. His main interests are boats and computers. So if we’re on the island, feel free to pose  your IT questions to him – or drop by and talk about boats.
