Dr J J Kabler
MBBS (1987) DGM MrCGP FPcert
I qualified from Royal Free Hospital in London in 1986. I spent my training rotations in Jersey General Hospital. After completing my GP training I stayed on in Jersey for 1 year doing psychiatry at which point I came back to the UK and have been at the Chipping ever since!
I do plenty of minor surgery and joint injections, occasionally acupuncture. I also have an interest in Skin problems and use a dermatoscope which enables you to see more details of a skin lesion than you can with the naked eye. This helps to decide what may be a skin cancer and what is benign. I am married to a very busy TV presenter Jackie who currently works for QVC. Outside interests include Jumps racing, playing golf and tennis, cycling and above all cooking (closet masterchef!).
Dr Christine L Thompson
MB ChB (1986) DRCOG DFSRH
I moved from Northern Ireland in 1981 to attend Bristol University qualifying in 1986. After house jobs in Torquay and Frenchay and a spell of infectious disease medicine at Ham Green Hospital in Bristol I did GP training in Bath and I became a partner at the surgery in 1996 but have lived in the area since 1987.
I have a passion about good quality contraceptive advice and fit coils and implants. I am responsible for personnel at the surgery and regularly attend our patient participation meetings. I am also Lead GP for Safeguarding Children and learning disability. I am a clinical supervisor which involves mentoring our junior doctors in training as well as looking after the many medical students that we have.
I am married and have four children and two dogs which keeps me busy outside work but I also love running and cooking!

My husband & I moved from the Midlands to Gloucestershire in 2015 to enjoy the countryside. I have a young daughter who keeps me busy when I am not at work. As a family, we enjoy walking and going mountain biking in the lovely local countryside. During my “me time”, I enjoy furniture painting, going out for a jog and I have recently started playing netball again.
