Who Are We?

Dr Jack Hickey

After growing up in London I went on to study medicine in Liverpool.

I qualified in 2000 and began to specialise in Ear, Nose and Throat surgery. I soon realised my future and qualified as a GP in 2006.  I’ve been part of the fantastic Woodchurch surgery team for 15 years now, and I’m proud to be a trainer for the next generation of GP’s. 

In 2011 I became involved with the Dungeness Lifeboat station and I am their Medical Advisor. My interest in occupational medicine continued while I was learning to fly at Headcorn in Kent, which is when I embarked on my Aeromedical Examiner (AME) training.

I have been operating as an AME since 2014 – it is incredibly satisfying being a part of numerous aspects of aviation, both in the air and on the ground. 
I have an amazing support team here who help run a professional and efficient service. 
The admin staff and nursing team are experienced in delivering exactly what is needed to keep people safe.


Amber takes great care of all the private administrative duties at the surgery. Amber is friendly, approachable and assists with all of our bookings, so please don’t hesitate to contact her if you need a process explained or if you have any concerns or questions.

The wider team

I’m backed up by a wonderful team of receptionists, administrators, dispensers, nurses and doctors.  They will help you make appointments, take blood tests, provide medication or examine you when needed.  The Surgery prides itself on being personal and trying to make you the focal point which is reflected in the NHS patient satisfaction surveys.
