Dr John Ruberry joined West End Medical Practice in late January this year. Studying medicine was a fairly late decision, he tells Westender.

Before that he had finished a degree in electrical engineering and spent some time in the air force, an experience that has been very valuable.

“But I found myself wanting a bit more human interaction and the satisfaction of helping people,” he said. A career in Medicine has always been on his mind, as his father is a doctor.

He looks forward to learn from his new, more experienced colleagues and especially working with his father, Dr Rob Ruberry.

Family owned and run businesses help give West End its close knit community character.
