Medical education

We are a training practice with up to 4 GP trainees at any one time. They are fully qualified doctors who are training to specialise in General Practice.

These doctors will have considerable experience as a hospital doctor and are now gaining experience in General Practice.

Sometimes they may video consultations as part of their training but only with your consent. You are fully entitled to refuse being involved in such video sessions if you wish.

We additionally host medical students in their primary care placements. They are always supervised by a GP and this forms part of their medical degree training and helps train the future generation of doctors.
