We are proud to be a well-established training practice, helping qualified doctors, known as registrars, complete the final stages of their GP Training before they embark on fully independent practice.
We believe that achieving and maintaining training practice status enhances the quality of the medical care that we provide at the practice. It also enables patients to see a wider range of clinicians whilst allowing the surgery to benefit from the fresh ideas and approaches brought by young enthusiastic doctors. You can of course still elect to see your chosen regular doctor but sometimes this may require you to plan your appointment.
On occasion, you may be invited to give your consent for the GP Registrar to video the consultation. This is a valuable tool helping the doctor to improve his/her consulting skills. The tapes once viewed by the trainer will be deleted.
We have been a training practice for many years and the feedback from patients regarding our registrars has been overwhelmingly positive. The doctors tend to be in the surgery for between 6 and 18 months, becoming an integral part of the practice team and an invaluable resource for patients.
