This practice is a training practice, which means we have medical students, Foundation Doctors and General Practice Registrars working in the surgery. They aim to gain as much clinical experience as possible. Foundation Doctors work in our practice for four months at a time. They are recently qualified Doctors who will consult with you and then discuss your case with one of the more experienced Doctors.
General Practice Registrars are experienced doctors who come to the practice for up to twelve months towards the end of their post graduate training to gain further experience in general practice and take the GP membership examination.
The trainees sometimes use video cameras during their consultations. This is for training purposes; the camera is focused on the Doctor to assess their consultation skills. You will be asked for written consent to film your consultation. Full details will be given to you at the time.
