FOCUS ON MEDICINE -DR AZHAR SALEEM (1991-1998)
Azhar started Bevin in 1991 as a red tie under head of year Mr Beattie,and stayed at Bevin until finishing A’ levels in 1998.
He says "It was the best decision of my life to date. I would’ve lost all focus in a college."
He went on UCL Medical School, with the help and encouragement of Mr Day, and after graduating in 2004, did a variety of hospital jobs in and around London. He settled as a GP in 2009 and currently works part time as a GP in Stockwell and working across Lambeth in various health centres as a Respiratory Health Practitioner for people with Chronic Airways Disease.
He also works for a charity called Humanity First, which provides relief to disaster zones. He went out as part of a 9-man team to Haiti in January 2010 about10 days after the earthquake and was there for 2 weeks. He helped set up mobile clinics in several areas which treated thousands of people while we were there.
He still plays football regularly and remembers playing in the school team alongside Sean Davis who went on to play for various Premership teams including Bolton Wanderers.
