Since joining The Connaught Square Practice in 1984, Dr Ruth O'Hare has cultivated a strong patient-centred tradition, providing high quality and innovative primary care services to the Westminster community. Dr Ruth O'Hare graduted in Medicine from Cambridge University in 1978 and is a Member of the Royal College of Physicians.

The Connaught Square Practice has cared for local people since 1906. The doctors who worked here then were among the first women to graduate from medical school in the world. Dame Annis Gillie ran the practice from the early 1930s until 1964, including the war years.

COVID-19 contingency sharing

Primary care staff across each borough will be able to access your full medical record without consent during the COVID-19 pandemic but will only do so when this is necessary to provide you with care. They will be required to use a smartcard which confirms their identity, and which limits their access and actions to those appropriate for their role. They will all have been trained to understand their professional and legal responsibilities in providing you with care.
