Dr Liam Linney
– Private GP

GMC: 7285643

MBChB, BSc (Hons) MRCS (Ed), MRCGP

Liam gained extensive experience managing emergencies in the hospital but also in the community quickly becoming a real all-rounder. Liam particularly enjoyed the community aspect of his job prompting the decision to move to General Practice. During this time he developed an interest in private medicine having heard about the different approach taken by the Linbury Doctors.

Liam was drawn to the Linbury doctors due to the bespoke nature of their work; centred around continuity, small list size and their availability to their patients. He has a particular interest in dermatology, minor surgery, children’s health and sports/exercise medicine.

In his spare time, Liam likes to watch his home town team – Huddersfield, attempt to play football but also plays himself. Liam is proud to captain his local team for the past few years and really enjoys this special role within his local community.

Liam has a young family and enjoys looking after his son Jack (as well as two cats Max & Paddy). When he is not playing football he likes to keep fit by riding his bike and going to the gym.

Dr Ferdi Daley Morris
– Private GP

GMC: 7285596

MBChB BSc (Hons) MRCGP PGDip

Ferdi qualified from Warwick Medical School in 2012 after completing a Biomedical Science degree in Cardiff. He’s since worked in a wide range of practices throughout Wiltshire and Gloucestershire as well as the 111 Urgent Care Team. With a long-standing interest in biomechanics, anatomy and sports, Ferdi has nurtured this into a specialist interest by completing additional training in joint injection techniques and attaining a post-graduate diploma in Sports and Exercise Medicine. He has also been heavily involved in education and training throughout his career; he has co-founded award-winning educational projects and has regularly taught and supervised medical students and trainee GPs.

Ferdi was initially attracted to General Practice by the clinical variety of the job and the enjoyment of building rapport and lasting relationships with patients. The desire to provide optimal care and continuity led to his transition into private healthcare, having identified Linbury as a company where these are both fundamental foundations. In his spare time, Ferdi greatly enjoys music and plays the trumpet. He enjoys golf, travel, gardening and, as an avid sports fan, follows as much rugby and motorsport as being a father to his young daughter allows!

Dr David Buckley

MBBS, MRCGP, DRCOG

David qualified from the Royal Free Hospital, London in 1984. He completed further training in London and Oxford in cardiology, gastroenterology, obstetrics and gynaecology, ENT and A&E, then finally his GP training in Abingdon, Oxford.

He became a partner in a practice in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1989 where he has been for the last 33 years. During his time there he was GP Tutor and a GP trainer. He also became an upper gastro-intestinal endoscopist, working at both Warwick and Evesham Hospitals, and this work continues.
He has a particular interest in cardiology, gastroenterology, dermatology, minor surgery/joint injections, and end-of-life care. He is also involved in research, having participated in several national trials in cardiovascular medicine and gastroenterology, and currently, a project looking at atrial fibrillation in primary care.

Having decided to step down as senior Partner and leave the practice, he is looking for a more rewarding way of delivering primary care and was attracted by the ethos of Linbury doctors. Outside of work David’s passions are skiing, travel, music, theatre and reading. He loves most sports and tries to find time to attend the gym regularly. He has 2 grown-up children and hopes to get a better work/life balance now so he can enjoy more time with his family.
