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. Dr Mani, a registrar will be commencing at the practice in August and we also have a a new FY2 Doctor starting at the practice in April 2013.
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.
What is an FY2 doctor?
The first two years after qualifying as doctors are now known as Foundation Year 1 (FY1) and Foundation Year 2 (FY2). These doctors have had at least 12 months of experience in hospital medicine.. FY2 doctors are placed with a practice for 4 months and will have their own surgery when theysee patients. They are supervised by one of our GP Trainers during their experience of working in general practice.
