Dr Raj Nair
Having qualified from GKT in 2003 and left Guys and St Thomas’ GP VTS in 2007, I continued to stay local and stayed on at my training practice. I was a GPwSI in COPD. I also have other educational roles at postgraduate board level at Guys' and St Thomas as well as at F2 level for HESL. I am passionate about football and spending time with my two young boys.
Dr Fiona Watson
The newest of the programme Directors, I have been a GP at South Lewisham Group Practice for over 10 years. I have special interests in drug misuse and women’s health.
My GP training included working in Newcastle, York and New Zealand interspersed with two winters in the French Alps before moving to London.
I am enthusiastic about General Practice and medical education but also outdoor pursuits including camping, walking and skiing.
Dr Sam Wessely
I have been working as a GP in South London since 2005, first as a Locum, then as a Salaried GP and, since 2009, as a Partner at Amersham Vale Practice in Deptford. Through working there I have developed relationships with patients from a diversity of nations, cultures and backgrounds, who bring a corresponding multiplicity of health beliefs and stories.
In 2008, having completed the DipTropMed (London) I worked in Guyana as a Primary Care Clinician with the Warau and other riverain communities near the Venezualan border. I learnt that the biggest challenges in our work, wherever we are, are relational.
I love jazz and sometimes think of the consultation as a form of improvisation. I encourage trainees to allow their own interests and experiences to enhance their practice to promote the idea of a rich work-life symbiosis.
