Kingston Education Centre
KEC was established in 2019 by Kingston GP Chambers (KGPC) in order to meet the need for undergraduate student placements in primary care settings. KEC runs from a dedicated training facility in New Malden, where we provide GP consultation appointments, observed by students, for any patient registered with a Kingston GP practice. We have partnered with local universities including; Kingston University, Roehampton University, St George’s Medical School, St Mary’s Twickenham University, Imperial Medical School, Kings College London and University College London, and further afield, Southampton University, in order to support the training of nursing, pharmacist, paramedic, physician associate, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and medical students.
Since 2018, we have provided over 500 students with primary care placements in specialities including nursing, medicine, physiotherapy, and emergency care.
Incorporated into our teaching approach are our Professional Resilience Training Programme and Inter-Professional Learning sessions, the latter 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 which has gained significant interest from other teaching bodies and is currently the subject of a research project funded by HEE.
It is possible for students who attend KEC on placement to receive further training upon qualifying and work within one of the 20 GP practices overseen by Kingston GP Chambers.
