The practice has been assessed and approved for the training of fully qualified doctors who wish to gain experience in general practice (such doctors are known as GP Registrars). These doctors, who have several years experience, will be present in the practice from time to time and you may be offered an appointment with them.
Sometimes consultations may be videoed as part of this training, but you will be asked for your agreement to this before each consultation and asked to confirm that you are still in agreement after the consultation.
As we are a training practice, your medical records may be used for educational purposes.
Additionally, from time to time, we may employ GP locums who are also fully qualified GPs who help us out during times of holiday, sickness and maternity leave.
Also, we regularly have medical students in the practice and you may be asked if they can sit in on your consultation. You can, of course decline
