General Practitioner Registrars and Students

For many years our practice has been involved in the training of medical students, GP Registrars and student nurses. You may therefore find a student present during your consultation but remember you do have the right to refuse to have them sit in. We regularly have young doctors working in the practice for a year to complete their training for general practice. These doctors have usually been qualified for three years before they join us and have been working in a range of hospital jobs to give them a broad experience of medicine.

Practices which are involved in training are visited from time to time by a panel of other doctors to check that the practice is of a high standard. As part of this assessment the doctors may check the quality of patients' records. If you would object to your records being seen in this way please let us know.

As part of the GP Registrar training,  they carry out a video surgery each week. Patients will be informed that it is a video surgery at the time of booking the appointment. Patients will be required to complete a consent form before the start of the video consultation.
