About me

Dr Cavill qualified with honors in her MBBS degree from Kings College London School of Medicine, which led to her extensive specialist training at London’s top hospitals including Chelsea & Westminster Hospital where she now practices as a Consultant in Acute and General Internal Medicine.

Dr Cavill is the Service Director for the Ambulatory Emergency Care Department at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, which gives patients access to specialized treatment to patients in an outpatient setting. Her leadership in the role led to the launch of the Same Day Emergency Care (SDEC) service at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, allowing thousands of patients access to same day specialist care avoiding unnecessary hospitalisation.

Described by her patients as being comprehensive and pragmatic, Dr Cavill prides herself in providing a caring and personalised approach to treating her patients. Her specialty focuses on holistic care for adults with complex medical conditions, polypharmacy with a special interest in frailty and aging. She believes in preventative medicine, and she prides herself in ensuring that her patients receive specialized medical care in an outpatient setting as much as possible without the need for and minimizing hospitalization.

In 2022, Dr Cavill was appointed as the Lead for the Covid Medicine Delivery Unit (CMDU) for the whole of North West London, which was the top performing CMDU in the UK, as featured on the BBC, and responsible for delivering life-saving treatments to patients. She was also the Clinical Lead for Sepsis.

She completed a Clinical Fellowship in Acute Frailty & Geriatric Medicine at University College London Hospital in the earlier years of her career, where she became a member of one of the UK’s first Frailty service in an Acute Medical Unit. She went on to receive a full scholarship from UCLH to complete an MSc in Gerontology at Kings College London.
