In the tradition of General Practitioner training, fully qualified doctors (GP Registrars) who have chosen a career in general practice spend their final year with the practice to gain further experience, under the care of one of the practice's qualified GP trainers. Occasionally our GP Registrars may see patients in the presence of their trainer. During their year with the practice they will be expected to video several actual consultations with patients, but this will only take place with the patient's permission. Reception will notify you on arrival if the doctor is videoing their consultations which you may decline if you so wish.
Medical Students also attend the practice as part of their training and may sit in during consultations or consult on their own. Their work is carefully audited and one of the doctors is on hand at all times. These consultations are always subject to your agreement.
The receptionists have been trained to deal with the wide variety of enquiries received. In order to direct you to the most appropriate health professional, they will ask you, in confidence, for the details of the reason for your request for an appointment. You do not have to do this but it helps the receptionist identify who is the best person to help you and how quickly they need to do this. If you wish to do this in private, please ask.
