We are a training practice and as such have GP Registrars working alongside us. The registrar is in the final year of a ten-year training programme, gaining supervised experience in general practice.
Some of the partners also teach medical students but you will always be asked first whether you are willing to see your doctor with a medical student present.
Occasionally consultations are recorded for teaching purposes, but again your consent will be sought first. You may also be asked if a medical student can interview or examine you at home to further their studies. At all times your involvement in such teaching and learning is voluntary.
We are very grateful to those patients who help the registrar and students develop their skills.
