Contact Baljit Dheansa
I am a Consultant Burns & Plastic Surgeon with my NHS practise based at Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead while my private practice is based at
McIndoe Surgical Centre and Spire Gatwick Park.
The scope of my practice covers acute burns, burns reconstruction, skin malignancy, breast surgery including reconstruction, leg trauma, general soft tissue trauma and all aspects of aesthetic surgery. I also provide medical reports covering those fields within the scope of my practice.
My private secretaries are Kelly Walter & Debbie Lovell. They co-ordinate my private practice.
Kelly Walter * PA - (Personal Assistant)
Kelly grew up in London and moved to Crawley, West Sussex in 1981, followed by a further move to East Grinstead in 2001.
She has worked with Mr Dheansa in both his NHS and private practice for the last 12 years. She works part-time on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from their office at the McIndoe Centre in East Grinstead.
She is married with two children and owns a mad springer spaniel named ‘Cooper’. In her own time she enjoys sunny holidays, playing golf and walking ‘Coops’ in the beautiful Ashdown Forest.
Debbie Lovell * PA - (Personal Assistant)
Debbie has worked for Mr Dheansa for nearly a year, having joined his team in December 2018. She job shares with Kelly, who she knows from her previous post at the Queen Victoria Hospital and works on Monday and Tuesday.
She gained her Medical Secretary Diploma at Crawley College in the mid 80’s and her first role was working for a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead. She continued in this role for many years, running his private practice as well, before moving into the pharmaceutical industry as a medical secretary and from there into the self-build housing industry, until deciding to return to the Queen Victoria Hospital, where she worked for over 15 years in the Maxillofacial Unit.
She has returned to her ‘plastic surgical’ roots, so to speak, and enjoys learning about the new practices and advanced technologies that have come about since she first started as a medical secretary.
In her own time she enjoys walking in the lovely local countryside and has recently started to learn the game of golf, along with all the frustrations that come with it.
She has a great love of horses, having previously enjoyed horse riding and sharing horses with friends.
Call Debbie or Kelly or out of hours call the hospital switchboard where you had your procedure and ask to speak to the RMO (Resident Medical Officer).
