Mission Practice Vision
Our team wants to support you to be well in body, mind and spirit. As health is not just about a lack of illness, GP surgeries needs different professionals to support you to stay well. Health and wellbeing depends on relationships: with ourselves, others and the wider world. Relationships are built on quality listening and good conversations; where there is time to tell your story. We want to hear your story!
Dr Rowell says: I’ve worked at the Mission Practice since 2001 and it has been good to be part of such a caring team. I’ve also really enjoyed getting to know the families of many patients during that time. My particular interest is in training other doctors to become GPs too.
Dr. Littlejohns has been at The Mission Practice since 2002. Her specific areas of interest include Diabetes, Obstetrics. Gynaecology and Sexual Health. She enjoys the challenge of working out the cause of peoples' problems, and feels it is a priviledge to have the opportunity to sometimes be able to help.
Dr Littlejohns says: The best thing about working here is the people: the staff who support and inspire me to aim higher, and the patients I have been able to get to know over good times and through the bad times.
Louise Vaughan trained at Nottingham Medical school and moved to Tower Hamlets in 2003 to complete her GP training. She has a special interest in women's health and mental health and has been exploring how the practice can use a whole person approach to healthcare, considering issues in the context of not just the physical, but the emotional/mental, social and spiritual.

Dr Hawkins says: I enjoy my work because of the people I meet. I joined the practice in 2011 and have loved getting to know my patients and their families over this time.
I trained and worked as a GP in the Netherlands before moving to London with my family in 2012. I have loved working as part of the team of great colleagues here at the Mission Practice. I consider it a great privilege to be working for the health and wellbeing of our patients in Bethnal Green. My special interests include minor surgery, musculoskeletal problems and asthma/COPD.
Dr. Main has worked here at The Mission Practice since 2008.
Dr Main says: What I most enjoy is being able to build relationships with other people over the longterm - patients or colleagues. And I love the variety and surprises that being a doctor in Bethnal Green brings! I hope that I can help to bring health and to relieve suffering sometimes, and to be alongside when there are no easy answers.
