Dr Burns qualified from Brighton and Sussex Medical School in 2009. Dr Burns worked as a junior doctor for two years in Hastings and then started her general practice training in Brighton and Haywards Heath. She completed her general practice training at the practice as a registrar in 2013. Dr Burns initially worked in a salaried role and has been a partner since 2018.
Dr Burns has a particular interest in sexual-health, family planning and womens health. She runs two family planning clinics a month. Dr Burns is also interested in teaching and regularly supervises a Foundation doctor on 4 month rotations in general practice.
Outside of work Dr Burns enjoys running (although this is predominantly after her toddler at present), she really enjoys sewing, photography and scuba diving (however this is more a challenge since the toddler!)
Dr Burns currently works Mondays, Tuesday and Wednesdays (including early morning appointments).
