We are a GP Training practice
As a result of the high standards of clinical care and education we offer, our practice is accredited as a Training practice for the training of new doctors. Training offers significant benefits to the doctors, staff and patients, the presence of additional doctors offers easier access to appointments.
What is a GP Registrar?
GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who are in the final year of training to be a GP.
Part of the training process requires some of the consultations with the GP Registrar to be recorded. Please be reassured that your consent will be sought before this is done, and if you do not wish your consultation to be recorded on video, we will respect your wishes. Intimate physical examinations will never be recorded.
