Dr Andrew Bower
MBBS, MRCGP, DCH, DFFP, DRCOG
I have been a GP for many years having qualified in London. I moved to Somerset in 2001 and joined the team at Bow in 2007.
I enjoy the many challenges that general practice in a rural community provide, but I have a particular interest in palliative care, cardiovascular disease and care of the elderly.
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family. My interests include rugby, running and gardening.

MB ChB(Hons) Manchester 1996, DRCOG, MRCGP, DFSRH, DTM&H
Although my surname is a little exotic (it's Persian), I was actually born and bred in the West Midlands and ended up moving to Devon in 1999 to train as a GP following medical school in Manchester and a year working in outback Australia.
Away from work, I live locally with my husband and our two dogs. My interests include gardening, cooking, travel and running to keep fit.
Ms Michelle Freeburn
Dip.PPM (Distinction), Dip. RSA, MIHM, MInstLM
I have worked within the field of management since 1997, starting my career with Lloyds Pharmacy. I moved into General Practice in 2004, joining the team at Bow in 2009. I really enjoy working within the healthcare community, providing support to patients, the practice team and our attached staff.
My duties outside of the practice include; Chair of the Pan Devon Practice Managers Forum and board member of Mid Devon Healthcare.
I constantly endeavour to balance my career and home life, which is challenging with two growing children. I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the theatre, listening to a wide range of music and reading.
