We are a training practice, helping qualified doctors, known as registrars, complete the final stages of their GP training.
We believe that achieving and maintaining training practice status enhances the quality of medical care that we provide for our patients. It also enables patients to see a wider range of clinicians and allows the surgery to benefit from the fresh ideas and approaches brought by young doctors. These doctors become an integral part of the practice team.
As a training practice video recordings are sometimes made of consultations. These are made for teaching purposes only. Video recording are only done with your consent. However, we do stress that all aspects of general practice, including training, are governed by strict rules of confidentiality. No examinations are filmed.
Patients may also meet medical students in the surgery. These students are undergoing a very important part of their medical training and your co-operation is valuable and much appreciated. No intrusion on the privacy of a consultation will take place and again you have the right to refuse their presence if you feel more comfortable.
