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.

Dr Cheryl Mensah (f)

Trained & Qualified from the University of Cape Town (South Africa) in 2008 and awarded Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, MBChB.

My early career was spent practicing medicine across South Africa including hospital settings in both Cape Town & East London, then in both a Community Health setting and  Psychiatric hospital.

In 2013 I decided to  bring my extensive A&E experience to  Abergavenny (Wales), after which I was a Resident Medical Officer for Nuffield Hospital in Derby. During this time I obtained a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in International Health Management from the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management May 2015.

Desiring a shift towards practicing family medicine I began GP Training in July 2015 through the Lincolnshire GP Vocational Training Scheme which afforded me a wide range of placements as a registrar, gaining experience in, but not limited to obstetrics and gynaecology; paediatrics, psychiatry & general medicine.

Upon completion of my training as a GP, I Graduated MRCGP in 2018 (Membership of the Royal College of General Practice, England), going on to practice in multiple practices & clinics in Lincolnshire. I became a part of the Church Walk Surgery team in 2019.
