Professor Fahad Rizvi trained as a surgeon for 6 years in Surrey, West Midlands, Brighton and Portsmouth prior to finding his career as a GP in Leicester. He is a partner at various practices in City and West Leicestershire and was until recently a LMC board member. He continues to utilise his surgical skills in primary care by providing community based surgery eg, hand, urology, dermatology and minor ops.
Professor Rizvi is a keen teacher and trainer and is the Lead for City Academy for medical student teaching besides being involved with Integrated Professional Learning, Physicians Associate, nursing and college student teaching. He has won many accolades and awards by the University of Leicester and RCGP for his teaching skills and enthusing young doctors and students to take up General Practice as their preferred career.
He is keen to continue working for increased funding to primary care, academics and resilience of NHS staff which he feels will help the communities and health economics
