Our congratulations to Old Roffensian Dr Amy Enfield-Bance who has been awarded ‘Doctor of the Year 2016’. This is a wonderful achievement that highlights the years of hard work Amy has dedicated to forging her career as a doctor.
Amy was a student at King’s Rochester where the environment and opportunities provided, allowed her to become the youngest medical student to enter Imperial College.
As Amy’s career as a doctor began, she was invited to work in the prestigious Queens Square world renowned for its neuropsychiatry. She then moved to Barnet, Enfield & Haringey NHS Trust as the liaison Consultant Psychiatrist for Special Needs. It is believed that at the time of this appointment she was possibly the youngest Consultant Psychiatrist in the country.
We were contacted by Amy’s proud father Mr Enfield-Bance who informed us of his daughter’s success. Asked how Amy’s education had shaped her future, he had these kind words to say about King’s Rochester.
“Without doubt it is the Headmaster who sets the tone. Thereafter it is the Staff who set the environment enabling and encouraging students to reach and fulfil their potential. History & Geography combine to provide the stability and sense of belonging in a community that gives students the confidence to venture out in the world.
King’s Rochester fulfils all these”.
At King’s Rochester we pride ourselves on providing a community that enables individuals to flourish and we wish to congratulate Amy on all that she has achieved and for the positive difference she has made in her patients’ lives.
It is our privilege and pleasure at King’s Rochester to prepare students for their future careers and adult life. We maintain strong connections to our Old Roffensians and are always happy to hear of their achievements and successes.
