The surgery has been accredited as being suitable as a training practice for those Doctors intending to become GPs and is proud to have offered this service for a number of years.
The GP Registrar (the Trainee) is a fully qualified doctor who already has much experience of hospital medicines and who will gain invaluable experience by being based within the Practice. They work full-time in the practice for a period of 6 or 12 months.
At all times they provide care of the same standard as that provided by the other doctors – please accept them as a valued addition to our team.
Consultations are sometimes videoed for training purposes. You will be notified beforehand if this is the case and will be asked to sign a consent form. The recording will only take place if you agree to this; there is no obligation for you to do so.
You will occasionally be asked whether you are willing to see your doctor in the presence of a student.
A notice will also be provided at the Reception Desk when medical students are present in the Practice for training.
