The importance of Tina's contributions both to the successful launch of The Clinic back in 2002 and to its everyday smooth-running cannot be overstated.

The manageress of a practice like ours has to be genuinely interested in the patients as people, and this is one of Tina's great strengths.  Being a native Brightonian certainly helps establish common ground, but the warm relationship that she enjoys with all our patients reflects her innate powers of empathy and understanding.  When combined with her formidable administrative and regulatory capabilities, we have a member of the team who would be very hard indeed to replace.

When not at her desk, Tina devotes herself to her family and her chiwawa Dolores, who she spoils shamelessly. She and her husband also get away for regular exotic holidays, of which Jeff is very envious - though he admits begrudgingly that she deserves them.
