The practice participates in the training of doctors pursuing a career in general practice. These doctors are fully qualified and may have several years’ experience in hospital medicine. Whilst they are with us we like them to participate fully in the medical care offered by the practice. We value our training status and the contribution that these doctors make to the practice.
When booking an appointment you may be asked if you would consult with one of our Registrars. We are confident that they will give our patients modern, effective and caring treatment.
Video Recording – Registrars are required to video some consultations to enable us to assess their performance. You may be asked if you would mind your consultation being recorded. Video recording will only take place if you consent to it.
