Our practice is a teaching practice. Our GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors and have a great deal of hospital experience. They are attached to our practice for varying periods and will become fully qualified GPs after completing their training. They are at all times encouraged to seek advice when required from the other GPs in the surgery. For teaching purposes we video some consultations but only with the patients consent.
We are also fortunate enough to have medical students attached to the practice for short periods. You will be informed at reception if this is the case when you arrive for your appointment and we hope that you will co-operate with us and help the students to learn about general practice. However, if you do not wish to have a student present during your consultation, please inform the receptionist prior to seeing the doctor. Your wishes will be respected and this will not affect your treatment in any way.
We also often have other health care professional students rotating through the practice with our nursing teams and we look forward to welcoming Physicians Associate students for the first time in 2019.
