We are pleased to be welcoming trainee GPs (known as GP registrars) into the practice. They are fully qualified doctors who have worked in hospitals for several years but who have chosen general practice as a career and who will be gaining valuable experience by being based in our practice. At all times they will be closely supervised and provide the same standard of care as the other doctors in the practice. If we would like to use your consultation for teaching purposes, you will be asked beforehand and you may, of course, decline.
Other Doctors in Training
We may also be welcoming other doctors in training into the practice. They are fully qualified doctors gaining experience of general practice to take our skills into their future careers. At all times, they will be closely supervised and provide the expected standard of care.
6th Form Students
Local A level students wishing to enter medicine as a career are increasingly being required to gain close experience of surgeries. We wish to support these students and on occasions we may ask that they sit in on your consultations to learn. Patients will be told of this when they book their appointment and are very welcome to decline and can also decline should they change their mind on attendance at the surgery. We fully understand that some consultations would be inappropriate to have an A level student present.
