Daryl Goodwin,
GP Principal, Wand Medical Centre, Birmingham

Daryl Goodwin MA (Oxon) BM BCh FRCGP

Daryl Goodwin has been a GP since 1984 and seen many changes in working conditions, but realises that the core skill of consulting has remained central to delivering good general practice. He is still learning the art of the consultation and trying to bring concepts of cognitive behaviour therapy and neuro-linguistic programming into the consultation.

He has been an examiner for the RCGP since 1992 and has been involved in primary care research networks since 1998. Assessment of practices as well as individuals have been part of his role. He is an honary clinical lecturer for Birmingham University, a trainer and a lead Training Program Director in the West Midlands. Attending and taking part in conferences, mental health, respiratory diseases, musculoskeletal medicine and neurology are amongst his medical hobbies.

The Wand Medical Centre where he works hosted the recording of the video clips and his consulting room was tidied up for the purpose. He had to wait for the earlier modules to be completed as the modules he authored naturally come at the end of the process as well as being important for demonstrating completion of training.
