Dr Jennifer Low (Jen) is a Scottish GP who moved to Perth in March 2019 with her family, a second international posting for them having previously lived in Houston, Texas.
Born and raised in Aberdeen in the North East of Scotland. She was a mature medical student having graduated with BSc honours degree in Genetics from the University of Aberdeen in 1994, Jen then went onto complete her medical training at the University of Dundee in 1999. During her undergraduate training she spent three months here in Perth observing the Ophthalmology team at Royal Perth and Sir Charles Gardiner hospitals and retains a keen interest in eye health.
As part of her General Practice vocational training Jen worked in various specialties in Aberdeen and surrounding areas before qualifying as a GP in 2003.
The large North East patient population working in the oil and gas sector was an influence for her further training in Occupational Medicine and she has working experience in both onshore and offshore environments. Jen then undertook partnership in a large city centre practice and was senior partner there for several years.
In order to balance family life with work commitments Jen became a sessional General Practitioner in 2009 and continued her interest in Occupational Medicine working for local General Practices, international and local Occ Health providers. She was an Appointed Doctor for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) during this time.
Owing to lack of female General Practitioners working to support the local police force Jen was asked to join the local team. This continued until her move to Perth this year at which stage, in addition to her General Practice commitments, she was the Depute Lead for Custody Healthcare and Forensics for NHS Grampian and the Clinical Lead for the Police Care Network for NHS Scotland.
Through her additional specialist training she has interests in Family medicine, Occupational Medicine, Child Protection, Mental Health, Sexual health, Domestic Violence and Abuse. Jen is keen to support and develop the diversity of General Practice with undergraduate and postgraduate education.
When not at work with Highland Medical Centre, Jen is a devoted mum to her two children, her two Mini Schnauzers (Roobarb and Custard) and personal assistant to her husband! She enjoys cooking, eating and roller coasters!
