The Practice are an accredited training Practice. This means that at any time there will be a GP Trainee / Trainees working alongside the established Partners. These doctors are fully qualified with hospital experience, and are attached to the Practice for 18 months of their GP Training Program, the remainder of which is undertaken in hospital.
They will be supervised when in practice by their Trainer. As part of their training they are expected to video a number of consultations and we are grateful to those patients who permit this, however, if you do not wish your consultation to be videoed please advise at the start of the consultation.
We may also ask our patients for feedback (questionnaire) on the Trainees at specified times in their training.
Medical Students and nursing students attend the practice from time to time. We hope that you will co-operate with us and help the students to learn about General Practice.
However, you will be informed of their presence in advance and if you do not want them to be present at a consultation, your wishes will be respected. This will not affect your treatment in anyway.
