Dr Sally Simmons

Clinical Director

Dr Sally Simmons is no stranger to the Channel Islands, as she was born and educated in Guernsey and spent childhood holidays in both Sark and Alderney. Her great grandfather was Sark artist William Toplis whose paintings are still in demand. Sally joined the Royal Navy (QARNNS) as a student nurse and continued her nursing career in QARANC as a Nursing Officer until 2002 when she decided to go to the dark side and become a doctor. She graduated from Peninsula School of Medicine in 2007 and undertook various junior doctor posts in hospitals in the South of England before applying to do GP training in Exeter. She qualified as a GP in 2013 having also completed a research year in a general practice in Mid Devon.

Sally learnt to dive in Guernsey when she was 14 and has continued this fascination with the sea throughout her career. This has led to numerous teaching and lecturing engagements both nationally and internationally. She is also a qualified HSE AMED (Diving at Work medicals) and can carry out Oil and Gas UK medicals and UK Sports Diving Medical medicals. Most recently she has been the Physician Courses manager for all Diving Doctor courses run in the UK by DDRC Healthcare in Plymouth .
As a GP Dr Sally has developed a portfolio of interests which include motorsport (in particular she is one of the Chief Medical Officers for the Isle of Man Roadracing events which includes the TT, Southern 100 and festival of Motorsport) and pre-hospital emergency care as a volunteer doctor for the charity BASICs charity. She owns 2 motorbikes but given Alderney’s speed limit may have to keep one on the Isle of Man for especially fast blasts.
Sally is keen to develop health promotion ideas for chronic disease including mental health, women’s health and diabetes when she takes up her new post as GP Clinical Director at the Island Medical Centre.  She would like to actively forge links with the local community in improving and maintaining the delivery of health care and looks forward to meeting people who are equally keen to encourage good self-health.
