Dr Peter Foley

Dr Peter Foley graduated with his medical degree in 2012 and has finished his General Practice training in 2017. Alongside his General Practice training, Peter also studied Sport and Exercise Medicine through the university of Bath.

It was through this that Peter developed his passion for preventative medicine and began to explore the role of motivational interviewing and nutrition in addressing preventable illnesses which he encountered in his clinics. Peter is currently conducting research on the role of nutrition and physical activity in patients with prediabetes and comparing results between low carb and low fat groups.

He is passionate about involving, educating and supporting his patients in their lifestyle changes.
