Dr Webster qualified from Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals in 1999 which incorporated some work abroad in Zimbabwe with the Medical Air Rescue service. His practice at the Nuffield reflects his NHS practice at Tunbridge Wells Hospital where he is the Clinical lead for Respiratory Medicine. He has a broad interest in all aspects of Respiratory Medicine and offers a comprehensive service incorporating investigation of all aspects of Respiratory disease supported by a robust radiology service.

The initial consultation incorporates same day spirometry, Electrocardiography, phlebotomy and basic radiology  including high resolution CT. Where more invasive investigation is warranted, he offers a day-case fibre-optic bronchoscopy service supported by experienced interventional radiologists. The cancer service is supported by Multi-disciplinary discussion on a weekly basis.

He also has a close working relationship with our local Physiotherapy service who provide home review if hospital attendance is difficult

Most recently he has set up a pleural service including pleural ultrasound, thoracic pleural catheter placement and a medical thoracoscopy service for the more challenging diagnosis of pleural cancers including mesothelioma. This also gives access to a bespoke lung clinical nurse specialist service. A cancer screening service is also envisaged for those patients at high risk of thoracic malignancy.

Personal interests

 I live in Goudhurst with my family. I enjoy photography and supporting the many sporting achievements of my 3 children. My daughter currently plays hockey representing Kent at a National level and my eldest son is on the Saracens Rugby development and training academy. As a member of the Woodland Trust I enjoy arboriculture and planted an orchard upon my arrival in Goudhurst 9 years ago, which includes several traditional Kentish apple varieties as well as Quinces, medlars and numerous vines. My other passion is travel, most of which has been in and around Continental Africa where my qualification as a BSAC sports diver has led me to many truly spectacular submarine treasures.
