We are a training practice and employ the services of general practitioner registrars. Registrars are fully qualified doctors who have worked in a variety of hospital posts prior to their training in general practice. They are attached to the practice for four to twelve month periods so as to undergo further training to gain the necessary skills required for general practice. On occasions consultations may be recorded solely for teaching purposes, but only with the patient’s consent.
These are doctors still in training who visit the practice from time to time as part of their degree course. When a registrar or student is in the practice, the receptionist will inform you if they are sitting in with the doctor you have come to see, as part of their training. Please say if this would be a problem for you at this time.
