Training Practice

We are a GP training practice, and will normally have a Registrar attached to the practice. The Registrar will have already spent a considerable time working in hospital medicine before spending a year with us to gain experience in general practice. We also have ST1 and ST2 doctors who spend four months with us before going back into hospital medicine.
GP learner workload is carefully controlled to be at a level consistent with their abilities and experience. In practice this means seeing patients alone only after and induction period, initially with 20 minute appointments. (the standard for the practice is 10 minutes).
Part of this training requires video consultation, and from time to time we may ask patients to help us with this valuable aspect of the training year. This would, of course, only be done with your written agreement. The recordings are only used for teaching and training purposes, and confidentiality will always be maintained.
