Dr Gora Bangi (m)

I qualified in the year 2000 following an initial career in Surgery, and then trained to become a GP.

I have subsequently been involved in leadership of the NHS at a local, regional and national level.

I set up Leyland surgery in 2013 and we now run three local surgeries. I am a trainer and academic adviser and I am responsible for training and mentoring numerous clinicians in various stages of their training.

I am dedicated to the development and progress of modern general practice and will advise and promote to a variety of national Bodies.

Outside of work, I like to keep fit and very much enjoy my sports, I have five children, who we have watched grow into mature adults each with their own careers and aspirations. My wife is a nurse at the local hospital and my daughter is a physician in Manchester.


Dr Christopher Scales (m)

MBChB. BSc (Hons). MRCGP

Having been born and bred in Kent, I moved north for university and graduated from Leeds medical school in 2003. But after meeting a Lancashire lass, I moved to the northwest, married and started a family and now have three beautiful children. I originally trained to be a surgeon specialising in orthopaedics and trauma but later realising I was happiest working in the community, changed my career to become a GP. This has given me a wealth of experience in both surgical and medical specialities and I have even spent time in Washington DC USA working for a trauma team. I continue to have an interest in surgery and have a regular minor operating list at the surgery. Outside of work I try and stay fit running but it’s mainly running after my three children.

After growing up in the South West, I came up north to Manchester for university, returning to my mum’s family roots in Altrincham. Graduated in 2019, started working for Royal Preston Hospital. I am working for the surgery as part of my training, and plan to continue with GP training going forward. Outside of work, I love travelling, and have been planning trips for after Covid restrictions are lifted.
