Dr Glyn Stockton MBChB MRCGP (m)

After studying to become an Orthopaedic surgeon i had a change of career and decided that General Practice was for me! I worked in various GP practices in the Manchester area and was then, along with Dr Thompson, given the opportunity to take over an existing practice in Middleton, which we then re-located to the Boarshaw area. As a partner i am tasked with ensuring that the practice is providing a high standard of care to the population we serve both clinically and professionally. I have a keen interest in minor surgery and Orthopaedics and am able to perform various procedures to ensure our patients can be given the choice of being seen at the surgery rather than at the hospital for their procedures.


Dr Louise Thompson MBChB MRCGP DRCOG (f)

I qualified as a GP in 2002 and worked in various GP practices before getting the opportunity to take over the practice with Dr Stockton, which we then relocated to the Boarshaw area in December 2008. As a partner I am responsible for ensuring that the practice achieves high standards in clinical care and maintains a high level of professional service at all times.

I love being a G.P. as I find all areas of medicine interesting but have a particular interest in obesity and weight management.



I'm a Stockport girl who had the pleasure of going to medical school in Newcastle upon Tyne.  It's a lovely part of the world so i ended up staying on to do my GP training.  I qualified in 2010 and I started work as a medical journalist in 2007.  Until this year I have been Deputy Editor for the Royal College Of General Practitioners Journal 'innovAit' for GP trainees which helps me keep up to date.

After a while i realised that 'home is where the heart is' so i came back to the North West.  One of the first practices where i locumed was Dr Stockton & Thompson's and it was a delight to finally join this young, innovative team as a salaried GP.

I enjoy being a generalist and seeing patients as a whole person instead of a list of conditions and so remain interested in everything and anything.  However, as well as Dr Thompson, i enjoy helping with issues relating to women's health and am the children's lead for the clinical commissioning group.

Dr Lucy France (f)

I qualified as a GP in 2011 after attending Nottingham University and then doing my specialist training in Salford. I have an interest in Paediatrics and Obstetrics and Gynaecology having completed diplomas in these specialties. I have worked at a few surgeries in the area but decided the friendly, hardworking team at Stockton and Thompson was the place to stay. I spend my time away from work with my family and walking my dog in the Lakes.
