Marie Hopson, Practice Manager

With not a clue on what to do with her life, Marie left college with a Distinction in Business and Accounting. She made the decision to prepare herself for any eventuality and to acquire skills that would enable her to secure employment, whilst searching for her dream job and completed all her secretarial exams to the highest standard, in addition.


Her first position was not what she expected (particularly with a weak stomach) when she found herself working as Receptionist/Secretary in a busy Pathology Department at the London based private hospital, The Cromwell Hospital. She soon realised that no day was ever the same and became intrigued by all things medical. She worked her way through the hospital departments gaining knowledge of all areas of Patient Services. Not satisfied, she decided to go to night school and after two years officially became a Medical Secretary, securing the position of PA to the General Manager at the London Heart Clinic, now part of Harley Street Clinic. Then nearer home at the Clementine Churchill and later a position with a Consultant Paediatrician and Consultant Obstetrician who had decided to start their private Practice together at the Portland Hospital. I guess you could say she enjoyed it as, 10 years and 2 young children later, she was still with them.


Wanting to spend more time at home with her children she left these doctors, took a part-time position in Harley Street and worked as a freelance Medical Secretary, covering most specialist areas of medicine.


In 1990 she was introduced to Dr Ian Hay and landed her dream job. She was afforded the ability to work from home and encouraged to attend all school events, often told – they grow up too quick and such memories will always be treasured.  Ian and the Practice were supported fully throughout by Marie and her professional and caring approach to parents, often with anxiety levels at their highest, has played its’ part in the success of the Practice to date, 14 years and two grown-up children later.


Marie has encouraged and embraced the changes as Dr Ian Hay Ltd evolved. She works closely with all of the Practice Associates and has personally trained an amazing Patient Services Team, who now support her in ensuring that the high Practice standards are maintained at all times.  She is responsible for the organisation and general administration of the Practice and patients can contact Marie if they have any comments or suggestions about our services.


She has a love of dancing and is so proud of her children, Sophie & Mitchell and indeed the success of the Practice, and considers all of the team to be an extension of her own family.


Patient Services Team:

Marie the Practice Manager is exceptionally supported by the Patient Services Team, initially with Louise Enright, later joined by Linda Enright (her sister-in-law) and most recently Linda Strickler who share the same work ethic and are dedicated to providing a professional, efficient and caring service to our Practice Consultants and patients alike. 


The Patient Services Team will be who you have the most frequent contact with as they will answer the majority of queries that are received by phone or via email. As mums they also can identify with most of our parents’ concerns and always go that little bit further with their efforts to help.  They also assist with tasks ensuring the smooth day-to-day running of the Practice.

If there are any problems or queries that they cannot easily deal with, they will always seek the advice of Marie or one of the Consultants as required.


Confidentiality of patient records is maintained at the highest level by all our staff members.
