Meet the Speaker
Dr Steve Holmes

Steve has worked as a GP principal since 1989, initially on the Yorkshire/Lancashire border and since 2002, at The Park Medical Practice in Shepton Mallet, Somerset.

He has a long-standing association with the Primary Care Respiratory Society, the British Thoracic Society and the Royal College of General Practitioners, as well as the International Primary Care Respiratory Society and Asthma and Lung UK.

Steve has been involved in medical education in a variety of guises, often at a national or regional level since 1991. He has been involved in a wide range of respiratory educational initiatives for generalists and specialists, both medical and nursing and has been involved in research work with more than eight universities.

He has taught nationally on quality improvement methods, leadership skills and communication skills training, for more than 20 years as well as his respiratory work.

He has published more than 300 articles, is a reviewer for more than 10 active peer reviewed journals and has had the opportunity to work at a global level.

Throughout this, he remains a clinician; passionate about the values of good primary care, continually developing the quality of clinical care, and providing holistic care for patients and their families from cradle to grave.

He is married with two adult inspirational daughters and a wife who inspired them. He manages to get time to enjoy family holidays, walking and running (up to half marathon distance), watching rugby when the opportunity allows and playing the guitar or piano badly!
