Medical Training

We take medical students.  The students may sit in with surgeries from time to time. If you prefer not to have a student present, please mention this either at reception or when you enter the consulting room. This will not affect the care you will be given.

GP Trainees. The Practice usually has one or two General Practitioner Trainees working with us – they are qualified doctors undergoing further training to specialise in general practice. They may be with us for up to 12 months. You may make appointments to see them just as you would any other doctors.

Video work. As part of training medical students and trainees, as well as occasional personal development work for the established GPs, we may ask you for permission to videotape a consultation.  No intimate examinations would be recorded. The videotape may be used for examination purposes or assessment of the doctor’s ability. You can decline to be videotaped and this will not affect the care you will be given.
