Meet the GP Team at Cuckfield Medical Practice & The Vale Surgery
|Dr Rob Harvey|
BSc MBBS DRCOG Dip Sport & Exercise Medicine MSc MRCGP;
Specialty: Orthopaedics specialising in Sports Injuries
I qualified from St Mary's Hospital, Paddington in 1986 and then took up GP vocational training at Cuckfield Hospital. I became a GP Principal at Cuckfield in 1990. I further specialised and gained a Diploma in Sports and Exercise followed by an MSc in the same subject.
I carry out a minor surgery clinic once a month at The Vale. Patients can make appointments to see me if they think my skills are appropriate to their problem.
Alternatively book with any of the GPs and they will ask me for advice in management or advise you to book an appointment to see me. I also supervise Foundation Year 2 doctors who come to Cuckfield for 4 month attachments.

MB BChir MRCGP DRCOG DCH Dip Dermatology, GP Trainer
I qualified in 1981, University of Cambridge and spent 3 years in Academic Pathology in London, before completing the GP training scheme in Crawley and Horsham. I worked in Cuckfield for 10 years as a salaried Doctor and then became a Partner.
As my children were growing up I was a portfolio GP and trained as a Dermatology assistant, while working GP sessions and working at St Catherine’s hospice. I have a strong interest in Palliative care and Dermatology, am Diabetes lead and GP Appraiser. I have been a trainer since 2008 and am well supported by all my colleagues who are as committed to teaching as I am.
Outside the practice my grown up kids are great fun and visiting are galleries with them is so much better than changing nappies, I also enjoy photography, and travel to far away locations.

After qualifying at St George's Hospital Medical School in London, I worked as a junior doctor in Chertsey and Brighton. I then moved to Perth in Australia and worked in A&E and Paediatrics. Keeping up my love of the seaside I moved back to Brighton in 2010 where I undertook my GP training.
Since then I have gained experience as a locum in many practices across Sussex until starting work at Cuckfield in February 2014. In April 2015 I became a Partner at the Practice and I am the Cadlicott Guardian, Information Governance and Health & Safety Lead.
Outside of work I am a regular runner and have travelled widely and have spent time gaining experience of different health systems in Ghana, India, Peru and of course Australia.
