The practice is involved with the teaching of medical students and also with further training of doctors (already fully qualified and with several years of hospital experience) who intend to make a career in general practice. These doctors, known as registrars, are attached to the practice for six months at a time. Please accept them as one of us. The receptionist will tell you if the doctor you are seeing is a registrar.
Occasionally a video recording of a consultation is made for training the registrar or student. In the event of this taking place your consent will be asked for and if you do not wish to take part in this, the recorder will be switched off.
