Training Practice

The practice has been accredited to train fully qualified doctors who wish to enter the speciality of general practice. The practice needs to be regularly inspected for this purpose and this involves inspection of the medical records. Only doctors approved for this purpose will do this and they will respect completely the confidentiality of the information. If you do not want your records to be available for inspection, then please inform the practice of your wishes.

Sometimes the doctor may wish to video record their consultations and in this case your permission will always be requested beforehand. We are very grateful for your help in ensuring the future training of tomorrow’s doctors.

GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who have completed their hospital training. They spend up to 12 months in practice working to develop their skills before furthering their career as a GP, or returning to the hospital environment. The GP Registrar holds daily surgeries and so you may be offered an appointment with our Registrar either by themselves, or with their trainer sitting in.
