GP Registrars: As an approved training practice, we usually have at least one doctor with us for a 12 month period as a registrar. The registrar is a fully qualified doctor with several years experience in hospital medicine and who is completing the post-graduate training in general practice. The registrar functions as an independent practitioner, sharing the on-call and surgery duties.
We may occasionally request your consent to video these consultations to be used in general practice training. Please be assured you can decline to participate at any time with no prejudice to your care.
Medical Students: We also have medical students with us from time to time. Medical Students usually see a patient on their own for 20 minutes and then the supervising doctor will join the consultation with the patient for up to a further 10 minutes. The receptionist will inform you of the name of the doctor supervising the student that day as this will be the clinician taking responsibility for your appointment.
We are very grateful to our patients for supporting the training of future generations of doctors and GPs.
