Dr Shailey Agarwal
MBBS, DCH, DRCOG, DFFP, MRCGP, PGDipENT, CAA AME
I’m Dr Shailey Agarwal and work both as a General Practitioner (GP) and Aeromedical Examiner (AME). I have been fortunate enough to have an international background, born in the USA, brought up in the Middle East, and have ancestral roots in India.
I trained as a doctor at St George’s Medical School, London graduating with distinction in 2001. I continued my GP training in Guildford encompassing ENT, oncology, paediatrics, obstetrics/gynaecology, and geriatric rotations. Over the last 15 years, I have worked in various NHS GP practices across Surrey and London in addition to working as a private GP at The Harley Street General Practice and Harley Street Health Centre. My work over the years has particularly taken an interest in ENT, sexual health, and woman's health.
In 2013, I took an opportunity working at Emirates Airline in Dubai, UAE for 4 years as an AME assessing and treating pilots and cabin crew. I met people from all walks of life and diversifying my career in many remarkable ways. From flying in a simulator to experiencing hypoxia effects in a hypobaric chamber, I became fascinated with aviation medicine and have continued to practice as a CAA AME in the UK.
I have a real enjoyment and commitment to medicine but I also relish the outdoors, sport, and music. I practice taekwondo martial arts with my two children and we enjoy traveling particularly to destinations with wildlife and nature. We ski as often as we can and in contrast to that, have a love for the desert. On a more cultural side, I play the clarinet for relaxation.
I look forward to meeting you
