Matthew "Matt" Ramsden graduated from the University of Nottingham and became a GP in 1990. He was the local GP, and ran his surgery from Rosamund Street Medical Centre. His wife Charlie was an English teacher at Weatherfield Comprehensive, and the couple moved into 6 Coronation Street in late-2000, renting the property from Natalie Barnes.

After his arrival, Matt became friends with neighbours Curly Watts and Ashley Peacock; although Charlie was not keen on his friendship with next door neighbours Ashley and Maxine, as Charlie had nothing in common with Maxine at all.

Matt worked at the Health Centre alongside Practice Nurse Molly Hardcastle, receptionist Gail Platt and cleaner Edna Miller.

Matt was helping Maxine and Ashley with fertility problems. When Ashley was in hospital for treatment, Maxine and Matt got very drunk and had sex. Maxine discovered she was pregnant and did not know who was the father though insisted it was Ashley's. Matt really wanted the child to be his since his wife, Charlie, didn't want children. Matt left Weatherfield with Charlie soon after Joshua Peacock was born, deciding to save his marriage leaving Maxine and Ashley to patch up their relationship and bring up Joshua.

In 2006 Matt came back seeking to gain custody of Joshua but left after seeing that he was better suited with Ashley and his new wife Claire - Maxine had died a few years earlier.
