Medical students and qualified junior doctors learn how to consult and manage illness and disease through their placements in our practice. Fully qualified doctors who have been selected for career training in general practice join us for 6 month periods to complete their training.
You may at times find that the registrar is consulting alongside one of the partners or that we ask for your permission for your consultation to be recorded on video camera. The purpose is to develop and improve the doctor's consultation skills. There is no obligation on your part.
Our practice undergoes regular external reviews in order to maintain teaching status. This includes assessment of the ways in which we maintain your medical records. Your permission is always sought first. You will always be asked about any teaching that is planned for your consultation.
Please do let the receptionist know if you wish to consult alone.
