Dr Brian Thomas Flynn MBChB MRCP DipGUM MRCGP
Dr Brian Flynn is a U.K trained doctor, with over 18 years of clinical experience, having qualified from the University of Leicester, England in 2001.
Prior to becoming a General Practitioner, Brian gained extensive experience in various hospital based medical specialities for over 13 years. In 2006 Brian obtained a Clinical Fellow position working in Infectious diseases, where he developed an interest in Sexual health. He then moved to Scotland to undertake training in Sexual health to Consultant level over the next 5 years. It was during this period of training, he came over to Sydney to work in the Sydney Sexual health hospital for a year, which is where he fell in love with Australia! Brian returned back to the UK to complete his sexual health training, qualifying as a Consultant in 2013.
Due to his medical background and ongoing interest in general medicine, not satisfied with being trained in one speciality, Brian also wished to be a GP! During GP training he particularly enjoyed his paediatric, Obs & Gynae and mental health attachments and gained his membership to the Royal college of General Practitioners in 2016. Given his unique dual qualifications in two specialities, he has since worked in various city based and rural GP practices in the south of England, whilst continuing to provide regular sexual health sessions at local hospitals.
Brian loves being a GP as he can not only apply his breadth of experience to the clinical aspects of looking after patients from all walks of life, but the ability to get to know a patient well results in tailored management plans and an ongoing positive relationship to support their good health well into the future.
After his year of living in Sydney in 2010, Brian has always wished to return to live and work in Australia, and is delighted that this has finally happened in 2019.
Clinical areas of interest: Sexual Health, Mens health, LGBTQIA friendly.
Personal interests: Outside of work Brian enjoys running and regularly plays squash. He also loves a good pub quiz! He is a keen traveller and is looking forward to exploring Australia more! He would say he is a 'foodie' but admits he is a terrible cook - but is trying to get better!
