What People Say About The Course

Kuljyot Bajaj

Burns and Plastics

I did a Healthy English course in December 2020 focused on interpersonal skills with patients delivered to me by Rachel and I must say that it was absolutely fantastic.

Having already stayed in the UK for 4 years at the time of course, I was completely baffled to learn I was still unaware about British communication. Rachel helped me improve in my communication skills and as a result I not only did pass my fellowship exam but also got to be a better communicator in daily dealings with my patients.

I would recommend this to anyone who is new who wants to make a difference in their practice in the NHS UK. Thank You Rachel.

Heathy English Course by Rachel Dexter is very helpful for international graduates coming to UK, and specifically designed for doctors.

It has improved my communications skills with patients and colleagues and in everyday life as well.

This course gives a direction as to how you begin with improving your communication.

No matter which stage  you are in your career and how long you have been in UK, if you feel I have to communicate differently and more effectively , Healthy English course will make a difference.

Hemen Salih

Consultant Radiologist at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

It was a great opportunity to attend and complete the online course “Encouraging, Equipping, Empowering UK IMGs” with Rachel. The course did helped me to further understand UK culture and enhance my social relations with work colleagues.

The course also helps to understand what patients in the UK want from doctors and how to build trust and work as a team with our patients. You will also get a free 1hr coaching and feedback session with Rachel if you watch all the videos and complete the google forms.

It was a really useful course and I wish I had attended the course when I first arrived in the UK in early 2020. I do recommend this course for every international doctor who is new to the NHS. Many thanks Rachel! 

Rajan Chopra, MD FRCPath

Consultant Histopathologist at Blackpool Fylde and Wyre Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Rachel’s work helps international doctors to develop appropriate & effective practice of English in UK. Her ‘Healthy English’ courses include discussion of various conversation facets while interacting with colleagues, social acquaintances and patients/patients relatives; which is quite useful in developing professional relationships and developing functional communication. I have been impressed by the useful insights offered in this course for the English usage as well as into the non-verbal communication.

I have definitely benefitted from attending it; and I can recommend it not only for the international doctors but also for any doctor/health care worker aspiring to develop effective communication skills.
