Kingston Education Centre

We work alongside local colleges and universities to provide a wide variety of clinical student placements in a primary care setting. 

We provide over 130 students with primary care placements each year in specialties including nursing, medicine, physiotherapy, and emergency care.

We are based at the Village Surgery in New Malden.

Further Information

KEC was established in 2019 by Kingston GP Chambers (KGPC) in order to meet the need for undergraduate student placements in primary care settings. We have partnered with local universities, including Kingston University, St George’s Medical School, St Mary’s Twickenham University, Imperial Medical School in order to support the training of nursing, pharmacist, paramedic, physician associate, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and medical students.

Incorporated into our teaching approach are our inter-professional learning sessions which allow students the opportunity to work and learn together, benefitting from viewing patient care from the perspective of peers with alternative approaches and skills. This is an innovative approach has gained significant interest from other teaching bodies and is currently the subject of a research project funded by HEE.

KEC runs a dedicated training facility from The Village Surgery in New Malden, where we provide GP consultation appointments, observed by students, for any patient registered with a Kingston GP practice.
