Matt Hoghton
General Practitioner and Medical Director

I have been a GP partner for 18 years and in addition to my practice responsibilities I am a Medical Director in an Independent Healthcare provider. I have been involved in the care of adults with Learning disabilities in both secondary care institutions and the community. As part of the RCGP Learning Disabilities group I have represented the College to Department of Health in Good Practice in Cervical and Breast Screening for Women with a Learning Disability and been part of the DoH Task Force for Valuing People.

As a trainer I have been involved in both undergraduate and postgraduate training for doctors in the care of people with learning disabilities. I have been fortunate to have collaborated and been mentored by some truly inspirational people including Phoebe Caldwell and Graham Martin to produce some research and publications regarding ways that care can be improved .
