Dr Jack Hickey


I grew up in London and went to Liverpool to study medicine qualifying in 2000. I was initially drawn to a surgical career specialising in Ear Nose and Throat. I then realised my future and qualified as a GP in 2006. Since moving to Kent in 2007 I joined Woodchurch Surgery in 2011 and am a trainer for the next generation of GPs.

I became involved with Dungeness Lifeboat around 2011 and am proud to still be their Medical Advisor. It sparked an interest in occupational medicine and while learning to fly at Headcorn I started my Aeromedical Examiner training and have been an AME since 2014. I love seeing the huge variety of different aspects of aviation that goes on both in the air and on the ground and being part of it gives me huge satisfaction.

I’m backed up in the office by a great team of admin staff and equally a superb nursing team who help deliver what is needed to keep people safe.
