Medical Education

In addition to hosting medical students, the practice helps to train future general practitioners by working with “GP registrars”. These doctors already have considerable hospital experience before joining us for one year in preparation for finding their own practices.

The practice also trains Foundation Doctors. A Foundation Year Doctor will have completed one year of general hospital experience after qualifying. They are employed at the practice for four months, closely supported by the General Practitioners.

Chaperones

We appreciate that some patients may feel more comfortable having a chaperone present during an examination by a doctor or nurse. If you would like to have someone else with you during an examination, please tell your doctor or nurse or, if possible, advise the receptionist before your appointment.
