   Locum doctors

Occasionally, we may employ locum doctors to cover for one of our own GP’s who is on holiday or study leave. A locum doctor is a qualified and experienced doctor who is fully conversant with the practice procedures and has access to the patient medical records.

The practice is involved in the advanced training of qualified doctors. This requires the practice to be assessed regularly to ensure the care we provide is of the highest standard and also ensures all our GP's are committed to their own on-going development and learning. We usually have a Registrar with us, who is a fully-qualified doctor who has spent at least five years working in a hospital environment before joining us to gain experience in General Practice. The registrar may sit in on consultations and will, gradually, see patients on their own under the supervision of one of our GP’s. These consultations may be videoed for training purposes only. These consultations are a key part of training new GP’s but you may always request to see the GP alone.

  Medical students

We occasionally have medical students attached to the practice. You will be informed if this applies to your consultation and will have the option to ask the student to leave. However, if you agree to the student's presence, it is of great help in their education.
