We are an appointed general practitioner training practice and often benefit from the attachment of GP Registrars. These are fully qualified doctors with usually three years post qualification experience. They join us for 6 - 12 month periods to gain experience of general practice. As part of their training they are expected to video some consultations for assessment by more experienced doctors. Patients will always be asked for their permission for any consultation to be filmed and are completely at liberty to refuse.
From time to time, we also have senior medical students join us to gain experience under the direction of our clinical staff and you may even be offered an appointment in the student-led surgery. You will always be informed if there is a student present before your consultation and will always be given the opportunity to decline.
