Medwyn Surgery is an accredited NHS training practice for undergraduate medical students and postgraduate doctors (Specialist Training GP Registrars).
GP registrars are fully qualified doctors who have completed hospital training and wish to pursue a career in general practice. They spend up to twelve months at Medwyn to improve their consulting skills and widen their experience in primary healthcare. The GP registrars hold daily surgeries like the other doctors at the practice and are mentored by a GP trainer. Dr Chris Monella, Dr Stewart Tomlinson and Dr Raj Sekhon are all approved trainers for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Postgraduate Deanery.
Occasionally, medical students from St George's Hospital in London will be attached to Medwyn Surgery. During their time at the practice they will observe consultations with the doctor or nurse. This is an essential part of training the next generation of doctors who could be responsible for your future care. Reception staff will always ask if you agree to a medical student oberving your consultation. If you would prefer not to have a student present during your consultation please let us know.
