Author information

Gail Allsopp graduated from Birmingham Medical School in 1997 and following initial basic surgical training chose to opt for interventional radiology specialist registrar training. With a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the prestigious Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, she left medicine to train and work as a professional actress. By combining her medical knowledge and interpersonal acting skills she developed a career as a medical communications specialist working with all levels of medical and allied medical personnel. This led to communication skills teaching for a wide variety of professionals including government agencies and lawyers. She returned to medicine and specialised in General Practice to combine the face to face patient interaction with communication skills teaching and development. She is also a trainer for ISC Medical, specialising in courses for entry into GP Specialist Training (GPST).
