Dr Ruth Hewitt

BSc (Hons) MBBS Newcastle 1988 DRCOG DFSRH

Born in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, I graduated from Newcastle in 1983 in Agriculture & Environmental Science (my parents were
farmers).  Having met Dominic (my husband to be), I saw the light and graduated in Medicine in 1988!

Ever keen on an outdoor active lifestyle we headed for the Lake
District and moved to Derbyshire in 1990.  My first 15 years of GP partnership were spent in an inner city training practice.  I joined Appletree Medical Practice as a Partner in September 2008, actively deciding on a lifestyle change of walking to work, avoiding inner city driving and enjoying the beautiful countryside at home and work.

My areas of clinical interests include diabetes, women’s health and dementia.  I am the GP clinical lead for care homes within South Derbyshire Clinical
Commissioning Group.
