"South West London deanery offers an excellent breadth of experience within a small geographical area. The small size of the deanery allows for mostly short commute times and good social oppertunities. The rotation shares both a teaching program and two annual research meetings with KSS rotation allowing for plenty of options to present work regionally.
A majority of the elective orthopaedic practise is done at the South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre (SWLEOC) which treats more than 5,000 patients a year and allows for minimal disruption to elective lists.
We hold the annual Paul Calvert Cup golf tournament where the registrars compete against the consultants and is a great day out."
