Training Practice

Doctors in Training

Our practice is approved to train fully qualified doctors who wish to specialise or gain more experience in general practice. Our GP Registrars and Foundation Year trainees will have had at least 1 year post-qualification experience working as a doctor in various medical specialities. They consult with patients independently under the mentorship of  approved trainers. Occasionally we ask permission to video a consultation. You will always be asked in advance and are given the option not to take part, and this will not affect your care in any way. No recording will be taken without your consent and the camera will be switched off on request. These videos are used only for educational purposes with the doctor doing the consultation and are destroyed after use.

Medical Students

Fourth year medical students are sometimes attached to the practice for 6 weeks as part of their training. You will always be informed if a medical student will be present at your consultation with your GP. If you do not wish a student to be present during your consultation, please inform the GP.
