We are currently approved for the training of GP Registrars. These doctors are fully qualified and have been trained in the hospital. They spend one year in general practice before becoming GPs themselves and often bring expertise from the hospital and their recent posts into the practice.
There are times when we have no training doctors based at the surgery.
As part of our doctor training and to make sure we offer the best quality care to our patients we also sometimes make video recordings of consultations for training purposes. You will be asked for written permission at reception and are always allowed to object to the filming. Of course, the films are fully confidential for training use only and will be fully erased.
From time to time we will have medical or nursing students at the practice who may sit in on a consultation, but you will always be asked for permission beforehand. If you do not wish to see the doctor with the medical student present please let the receptionist know so arrangements can be made.
Thank you to all our patients for helping to train tomorrows doctors and GPs.
