Doctor Kate Fletcher, Dolphins Practice, Haywards Heath

Salaried GP

Dr Kate Fletcher - MBBS, BPHARM, MRCGP

After initially training and working as a pharmacist Doctor Kate Fletcher changed her mind and decided to return to University and study medicine. In 2000, after 10 years combined of being a student, she qualified from the Royal Free Hospital in London and started working as a Doctor, much to her Parents relief! Dr Fletcher then undertook her GP training in Nottingham and qualified in 2004.

After getting married to Dave they decided to move back down south to be closer to friends and family and settled in the Mid Sussex area due to the wonderful countryside, as they both enjoy walking. In 2007 Dr Fletcher started working at Dolphins Practice as a salaried GP.

In 2010 they became parents and life as they knew it ended! Charlotte is now 17 months old and a typical toddler full of mischief and smiles which make every day at home a delightful challenge and most days at work a breeze in comparison!

Doctor Victoria Wojciechowska, Dolphins Practice, Haywards Heath

Salaried GP

Dr Victoria Vaughan - MBChB, MRCGP

Dr Vaughan was born and grew up in North London. Her parents were both Olympic fencers - her mother was English and father Polish, hence the long name!

She qualified in 2010 from Bristol University and completed her GP training in Chichester in August 2015 and has recently moved to Haywards Heath with her partner.

Dr Vaughan sees herself very much as a generalist and enjoys the continuity of care that General Practice can offer.

In her spare time she enjoys painting, running and exploring nature.
