Our directors

Dr Lauren Parry





I am a salaried GP at Queens Road Surgery and passionate about Primary Care.

My undergraduate medical training at Imperial College, London and BSc with their academic department of General Practice, gave me a firm foundation for the challenges and opportunities within Primary Care in London. I completed my GP training at Kings College Hospital and SLAM, and have worked in Southwark and Lambeth since.  I took part in the local Emerging Leaders Programme which helped me develop the skills required to be a voice for local general practice.

I joined the IHL board in August 2015 and amongst other things, I represent our 20 practices in the Local Care Network. I also sit on the Southwark and Lambeth Strategic Partnership board – a partnership of sovereign organisations: including providers, commissioners, citizens and academics, bridging health and social care, to support sustainable transformation locally both for the population and our workforce. My challenge here is to preserve what is best about our world-renowned primary care system and consider where new models of care might be needed.

I have three small children and love camping and cooking.

Dr Martin Iu




I am a GP partner at Nunhead Surgery and have been working as a GP in South Southwark for over 20 years. My medical training and vast experience of working as a GP has given me the drive to improve services in South Southwark – I believe in listening to the population we serve, delivering quality services in an equitable fashion across the system and random acts of kindness.

I was one of the founding members of Improving Health and have spent the last three years as Chair and director – this has given me the opportunity to learn and develop skills required to navigate the complex world of our National Health Service. These skills have served me well when engaging with and acting on behalf of our members.

Looking ahead, I am excited by the upcoming opportunities to working together as a federation and would like to see IHL as the organisation that supports our members and facilitates a Gold Standard delivery of services to everyone in South Southwark.

Dr Saadi Doha




I am a GP partner at Lordship Lane surgery since 2013 and I am passionate about delivery high quality primary care services to our local residents.

I grew up in Dulwich before moving to Sheffield to start my medical training. As a student, my favourite attachments were in primary care and spent time in surgeries in Derbyshire Peaks, Hillsborough and Doncaster. I completed my general practice vocational training in Southampton and Salisbury. As a GP in Southwark, I became involved in the Emerging Leaders Programme which helped me to develop skills to become a local leader for primary care.

My career as a GP is still in the relatively young phase but I was keen to get involved at a local level as it is clear that primary case is in a time of great flux. I became involved with IHL in late 2015 as their vision and mission really resonated with me – I wanted to be involved in supporting practices to be more collaborative and work together. I am proud of what we have achieved so far and am excited about continuing to try innovative approaches together to help support our local practices.
