We are a GP training practice and Dr Lawes and Dr Finlay are recognised trainers. Registrars in general practice are fully qualified doctors who also have at least one year's experience in hospital medicine since qualifying. Whilst a registrar is working in the practice you may be offered the opportunity of seeing him/her alone or with Dr Lawes/Dr Finlay. The registrar will discuss specific cases with Dr Lawes/Dr Finlay when necessary. Video recordings of consultations are a valuable part of general practice training but these will only be undertaken with your written consent. Dr Hamby is Programme Director for Tunbridge Wells GP Training.
Sarah is concerned with the administration of the medical centre and supervises all reception staff. If you have any suggestions to make for an improved service, please contact her via the receptionists.
