Dr Iain Grainger


Iain hails from North Yorkshire and trained at St Andrews and Manchester. He moved to Cumbria as a junior doctor 27 years ago and up to 4 years ago was a full-time partner in a busy 14500 patient practice in Carlisle. He really enjoys the new life at Court Thorn and in particular the way that working here allows him to return to the old fashioned values of the traditional family GP. Iain is the practices GP trainer, responsible for training the GP registrars who are attached to the practice.  His other areas of interest are minor surgery and joint injections.

At home Iain is married with 3 sons and enjoys cycling the lovely lanes of the Eden Valley with his wife on their tandem. If you see them in an evening or at weekends out on the bike then he apologises in advance for the Lycra
