Training and Medical Students
Doctors Training in General Practice
The practice usually has the benefit of one or more doctors training in general practice. After a substantial time spent working in hospital, they spend a year with us before entering independent practice. They are available for consultation in the same way as any GP at the practice.
Medical students, who are not yet qualified, occasionally sit in during consultations with your GP or nurse or they may see you separately prior to your consultation. You will be informed by the receptionist when a medical student is with your GP. Please inform the receptionist if you would prefer a student not to be present during your consultation.
We sometimes use video recordings of consultations for teaching purposes. You will be asked to sign a consent form before the consultation if you have no objections to your consultation being recorded. Please let us know if you prefer not to be recorded.
