Janice’s first job was working as receptionist in a lovely GP surgery in Somerset where she grew up. Since leaving to have her son, now five years old, she moved to London and began working at the A.P. Clinic. Janice loves her work and enjoys interacting with all the patients and the fantastic relationship she has built with the rest of the team. Janice is integral in maintaining our excellent customer service and ensuring the smooth operation of the clinic. In her opinion our patients couldn’t ask for a better team to look after them (we didn’t ask her to say that, honest!). In her spare time Janice enjoys spending time with her family, swimming and shopping (like most girls do)!
