Dr Simon Halpin

MBChB Liverpool 1989 MRCGP 2004

I initially trained in surgery in Liverpool before ending up working in Urology for 10 years. I switched to General Practice in 2004 [before Doc Martin on the Telly] because i wanted to develop relationships with my patients.

I became a partner at Weaverham in 2006. I live locally and have 4 children ages 8 – 18. My wife is a school teacher.

I am a member of the Royal College of General Practice and the Primary Care Urology Association and I represent Weaverham at the NHS Vale Royal CCG.

I specialises in minor surgery, mens health, urology problems [waterworks] and dermatology [skin problems].

Aside from work, I love watching Rugby, especially when my sons play, classic cars, motorsport, mountain biking and surfing [summer months only].

I also has a soft spot for Irish Dancing!

Dr Rowena Sheldon

MB BS Qualified 1997 University of London


I trained at St Bartholomew’s and the Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry.

After graduating in 1997 in trained as a surgeon – working in the Manchester deanery. I worked mainly in the colorectal field and had a specialist interest in the pelvic floor and faecal incontinence. I did an MD 2 year research degree looking at sacral nerve stimulation and faecal incontinence research that has been published and helped continue the battle to treat faecal incontinence.

I switched to general practice as despite enjoying surgery I decided that patient contact was more enjoyable.

During my GP training I have taken an interest in gynaecological and contraception and at the surgery run the contraceptive clinics. We run a 3 weekly clinic to do Mirena’s , copper coils and the nexplanon- contraceptive implants- please contact reception to make an appointment to discuss any contraception issues.

I am the CQC and respiratory lead for the practice
