GP Registrars & Medical Students
Fully qualified doctors gain special experience of general practice during their 6 month period with us and this includes conducting surgeries, doing home visits and attending special clinics. At all times these GP Registrars are supervised by one of the partners.
Please note: Your medical records may be used for training purposes. If you have any objection to this, you should inform the surgery at your earliest opportunity.
We also have medical students with us from time to time as part of their studies and they sit in with one of the doctors during surgery. Please tell the receptionist if you wish to see the doctor alone. You will be informed if a medical student is sitting in with a Doctor.
We are pleased to be involved in the training of future general practitioners. General Practice registrars are fully qualified doctors who have chosen general practice as the career they wish to pursue. They gain valuable experience by being based in the Practice for six-months at a time. At all times they provide the same standard of care provided by the other doctors of the practice.
By the nature of the assessment of general practitioners, they may often video record consultations, this is for educational purposes only and helps the doctors improve their skills. If you do not wish your consultation to be video taped, just say so. Your care will not be affected in any way.
Senior doctors, monitoring training standards within the Practice, may occasionally view patient records. If you have any objection to this, you should inform the surgery at your earliest opportunity.
