DR JOSEPH JONES, GP Partner at Penshurst Gardens Surgery, Edgware

Dear Evelyn,

The relationship between Essentially Medical and Penshurst Surgery is strong and mutually beneficial and long may it continue.


I very much value your efforts to bring the best speakers to the surgery at a time when the surgery is getting nearly daily 5 star ratings on the NHS choices website with accolades such as "Best Surgery in London".

The saying goes, "You are only as good as our teachers" and for me you bring the best teachers to the surgery to teach our GPs, medical students, and Registrar so that one day they too can be the best.

Warmest regards,


Dr Joseph O.E. Jones
Senior GP Partner
Penshurst Gardens Surgery

We just want to say a big thank you for providing us with the CPR training. We all thought that Kevin was a fantastic trainer and made the course interesting and fun. We learnt a lot from the training.

I had such a great meeting today. Thanks so much for letting me step in to cover your cancellation. I think this is one of my favourite surgeries

Mr Tushar Shah- Practice Manager at West Hampstead Health Centre

I just want to give you some feedback about using Evelyn Diamonds services through Essentially Medical.

We are now in our 4th year with using Essentially Medical. The Partners and rest of the Clinical team really do find talks with external consultants very useful to the extent of enhancing their clinical skills. The question and answer session together with slides is so informative. Yes Evelyn is sponsored by Pharmaceutical reps, but they are there for only 5 minutes and do give you an update on cost saving alternatives on medication. Evelyn offers a wide list of specialist areas that interest your doctors and it is certificated – going towards your appraisal folder as evidence.

As you may know we have a weekly clinical meeting and having Essentially Medical once or every 2 months really does ensure best practice form all our clinicians.

This is a totally transparent view from me and the clinical team here, so thought we should share this with you.

Best wishes

Tushar Shah

Please let Dr Swale know that Dr Ruben said that her talk was the best dermatology talk he has ever been to and he liked how methodical and well organised and presented the talk was.

Evelyn at Essentially Medical offers a fantastic service, matching  GP/practice learning needs with educational talks by local consultants. She brings refreshments, which are very welcome after a long surgery. Essentially Medical enable us to effortlessly  arrange a tailored educational package to our practice.


Michele Cain, Practice Manager, Fairbrook Medical Centre, Borehamwood, Herts

We have been using the services of Kay Mavromatis at Westherts Essentially medical here at Fairbrook Medical Centre since 2011.

It is a well run, efficient organisation with great communication.  Kay has a list of consultants on her books and topics that we send our GP's to choose from.  She is also great about sourcing specific speakers who we would prefer to hear.  I send her a 6 months list of dates, normally a choice of 2 in a month) and she books the speakers, sorts the food and rep and takes away the hassle/time and problems this can bring. We get Certificates for those attending either printed or emailed.   She is always here early to set up and late to tidy up but also discusses with the GP's subjects they would like clinical training in for their appraisals.    She has such a rapport with the consultants  she uses, communicates well with them that meetings run smoothly and everyone turns up.       Myself and my GP's are so pleased with the service and the help she brings us.

"Essentially Medical arranges excellent local consultants to meet and give talks on chosen subjects to primary care GP practices. The meetings are well organised and all the arrangements are done so that the meetings proceed smoothly. It is a pleasure to work with Evelyn Diamond and her team."


Dr C. Gajira

Dear Susan,

Thank you for arranging the meeting and such an excellent speaker. Dr Roche's talk was fascinating yet applicable to our daily work.  I will find out if anyone else would like such meetings.

Dr J. Witterer - lecture at Ealing Hospital

I enjoyed the evening, the venue is very convenient for me, the food was great, The rep was suitably brief and to the point (have mailed him for a reference and will wait and see how responsive he is!), and I’m impressed you found a good speaker at short notice. The topic was interesting and picked up on an area I felt quite weak in.

I will bear EM in mind if/when in conversation with practices I work with regarding lunchtime meetings.





Dr Justin Peter - BARNDOC

Dear Evelyn

Thank you for organising another great meeting and please thank Miss Golara for a super talk. The feedback was hugely positive.
