Dr Peter Irwin (m)


I trained at St. Thomas' Hospital and did my GP training in Aberystwyth and in the Snowdonia National Park. I joined the Practice in 1991. I try to combine modern general practice with the best of traditional family medicine. I am also on the local medical committee. My outside interests are my wife and three daughters! I am keen on horse riding initially to keep up with the girls but seem to have caught the bug in a big way and I am never certain whether it is the horses or the girls who cause me more trouble! 

Dr Chris Cullen (m)


Born, bred and educated in Edinburgh ('The Athens of The North'). I trained at Cambridge University and St. Thomas's Hospital in London, qualifying in 1987. I trained as a GP in London, after which I did Psychiatry for a few months. My wife and I moved to Hadleigh in 1993. My main medical areas of special interest are Child Health, Psychiatry and Cardiovascular medicine. My interests outside medicine are music (making and listening), classic cars, history and property maintenance. I have two children. My other great pastime is photography - with some of my better efforts on display in my consulting room.

I was born in London and brought up in Cambridge. I went to Newcastle Medical School, graduating in 1989.

I have been a partner at the Hadleigh Practice since 2002 and feel very privileged to be living and working in such a lovely area. I am married to Mark, also a GP; we have four children, Emma, Jack, Annie and Topher.

I am now a GP trainer myself and enjoy passing my knowledge on to the next wave of GPs.  I also have an interest in musculoskeletal medicine.  Away from work I enjoy travelling and cars.​


Dr Iain Lyons (m)

BMedSci, MBBS, MRCS (Eng 2006), MRCGP

I was born and brought up in London, and trained at St Bartholomew's and The Royal London School of Medicine. After graduating, I went down the surgical route, gaining membership to The Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2006, and then specialising in Plastic surgery. However, this was not the life for me and so I retrained as a GP in Ipswich, finishing in 2014. Since then I have had the privilege of working as a locum in many different practices around Ipswich and Colchester, and am thrilled to now be settling down in Hadleigh.

I have a special interest in diabetes and minor surgery. Outside of work I enjoy photography and woodworking,  and spending time with my wife and 2 young children.

Dr Esther Gray (f)


Brought up in East Anglia. I completed a degree in Human Genetics at UCL before going on to study Medicine at Warwick graduating in 2011. I then worked in London and in Liverpool before moving back to this area in 2016. I feel fortunate to have joined the practice in March 2018. My main areas of interest are Women's health and palliative care although I enjoy the breadth of general practice.

I grew up locally before moving to London to study Medicine at Imperial College London, graduating in 2006. I returned to Colchester for my initial jobs and then completed GP training in Chelmsford and then Colchester in 2014. I have been working for the last 4 years in Colchester as a salaried GP and am excited to be joining the team at Hadleigh.

I have an interest in Family planning, women's health and psychiatry but enjoy the variety of all aspects of general practice.

Outside of work I live with my husband and two daughters, Amelie and Matilda, who keep me busy!
