Trainee GPs and Medical Students
The practice is involved in teaching undergraduate medical students. You will be advised when a student is in attendance with your doctor. We seek your co-operation in the training of future doctors; however, you retain the right to be seen by the doctor alone.
We are a GP Training Practice, which means we help train future GPs. Qualified doctors work for a four month period or a year in our practice under supervision to gain experience working in general practice. Their status is equivalent to hospital registrars and they bring their knowledge and experience to the practice. The practice has to adhere to strict quality standards to be able to train GPs.
