General Practitioner Registrar and Students
Our practice is a training/teaching practice. Our GP registrars are fully qualified and have a great deal of hospital experience. GP registrars are usually attached to our practice for 12 months. They are at all times encouraged to seek advice when required from the practice partners. The practice also has Foundation Year (FY2) doctors attached for 4-month periods, who are supervised in the same way as registrars.
We are also fortunate to have medical students attached to our practice for short periods. If you do not wish to have the student present during your consultation please inform the reception staff prior to seeing the doctor.
When booking an appointment you may be offered an appointment with one of our GP registrars/FY doctors.
- Please be aware we are upgrading our telephone systems in each practice, to improve our service to you. This may cause a temporary delay in answering your calls. The engineers will rectify this as quickly as possible.
We are aware that some patients have received texts about smoking status’ for children, following us using some new software. We are sorry for this error, and have now put in place procedures to ensure this will not happen again.
- We will close on the afternoon of Tuesday 23 September 2017 from 2:00pm. The closure is due to essential training time which is a requirement from NHS England. We apologise for any inconvenience the closure may cause.
- All patients, including children, have an allocated ‘named’ GP. If you wish to know who you are allocated to please contact reception who will be happy to help.
