Who we are

In a world of shareholders and red tape, Medical Centre Developments is refreshingly different. With over 30 years’ experience, we’re the UK’s oldest and largest private investor in medical centres. Yet we remain compact and nimble.

Annie Hobden da Silva

Business Development

Looking for business-growth opportunities and improving what we already do are Annie’s key focuses. With an MSc. in Management, she’s been with MCD since 2018 after a spell as People and Change Consultant with PwC.

Annie loves to travel, a passion that’s helped by being married to a Brazilian and having in-laws who live in Portugal. However, with small children, she’s just as keen on simple zoo and farm trips here in the UK.
