|Dr Andrew Buffey (m)|
I trained at University College Medical School in London and qualified in 1993, being awarded the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, MBBS.
My early career was spent gaining experience and knowledge in specialities at London hospitals such as the Royal Free and St. Bartholomews. Initially I trained as a surgeon for several years .At this time I developed an interest in orthopaedics and sports injuries.
Extensive training and experience in A&E medicine allowed me to gain a broad knowledge base and ability to confidently manage medical emergencies in hospitals and in the community.
During my general practice training, I was fortunate enough to gain experience in dermatology; genito- urinary medicine; obstetrics and gynaecology; paediatrics and psychiatry, culminating in my final year on the Cambridge GP Vocational Training Scheme (Addenbrookes Hospital).
During my career, I have gained further specialist qualifications in family planning and currently hold the DFFP (Diploma in the Faculty of Family Planning) and the DRCOG (Diploma of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology). In addition, I also hold the MRCGP (Membership of the Royal College of General Practice (England).
I have worked at many practices in the Lincoln and Grantham areas until I became a partner at Church Walk Surgery in April 2011.
