Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my six year old daughter Rose - my favourite travel buddy.  We love to explore different countries and both love the ocean, especially snorkelling.  I also love diving and spent time in Thailand studying dive medicine.  We have two extra family members - Sparkles and Star ( both male Guinea Pigs!) who also like to go on adventures.  In my spare time I enjoy practising yoga and socialising with friends and family.

I am really looking forward to joining the Practice team and meeting new patients.

I will be at Chet Valley Medical Practice for the final year of my GP training from August 2015. Prior to moving to Norwich, I worked in Eastbourne, London, Australia and Kenya.  However, as my Norfolk-born husband says, 'all roads lead to Norfolk'. We happily settled here two years ago.

In my spare time I like to get outdoors and if feeling brave wild swim, otherwise I enjoy the cinema, art/craft projects and gardening (badly).

Dr Laura Meen (f)

I started at the Practice in August 2016 for my final year of GP training. I am originally from Norfolk, studied at Wymondham College before graduating from Nottingham University.  Since graduating I worked for one year in Chesterfield, then the weather and friends in Norfolk drew me back and I have been here ever since!

Outside work I have a dog which I love to get out and run with and occasionally can be seen out cycling or swimming in open water with my partner who is a professional athlete.  Also, on sunny weekends I enjoy joining my friends and water-skiing which I have done since a child.
