New Associate GP Joins Practice

Posted on October 3rd, 2018

We are pleased to announce that we have a new Associate General Practitioner, Dr Owen van Gijn who has joined the practice as of 1st October 2018. Dr van Gijn will be joining us initially for four sessions per week, whilst he undertakes further specialist training in community frailty medicine in and around Tunbridge Wells. As some of you will know, Dr van Gijn has been locuming at the practice for some time.

Dr van Gijn qualified as a GP in 2016 and has a very keen interest in tropical medicine and hygiene, having undertaken a diploma in the subject. His other area of interest is paediatric medicine, working for almost a year in paediatric units in order to acquire his diploma in child health. Using this experience, he spent six months working in a rural hospital in Sierra Leone, where he helped to train local staff in paediatric care.

A keen traveller, Owen has previously volunteered to provide medical support to youth-based expeditions and for ultra-marathons.

Soon to be a father for the first time, he and his wife will be moving into Tunbridge Wells in the next few months.

Dr van Gijn will be taking over some of Dr Bowes’s patient list: patients with surname letters beginning with D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, and M, will be transferred to Dr van Gijn.
