Meet the LMC’s Pastoral Support Team

Dr Steve Jefferies Kerow LMC Pastoral Support OfficerDr Steve Jefferies

Steve has been on the LMC since the 1990s and became a ‘Doctor’s Friend’ shortly afterwards.

Dr-Sarah-Keast-Kernow-Pastoral-Support-OfficerDr Sarah Keast 

Sarah is a four session salaried GP at Petroc Group Practice, having spent some time in other surgeries previously as a partner (10 years), salaried GP and locum. She is also an out of hours GP working one session a week and does GP appraisals across Cornwall. She tops off her portfolio with some locum coil fitting clinics across several practices in Mid Cornwall. 

Sarah has a broad contact with GPs in Cornwall and hopes she can work with others to support and optimise our varied working lives. She feels it is particularly important that she represents part-time female salaried GPs, who now make up a significant proportion of Cornwall’s workforce.
