We are a teaching practice for doctors in training. They attend the practice in blocks throughout the year. Their time at the practice is made up of sitting in with our GPs, consulting their own patients and having more formal taught sessions by our GPs.
Appointments with medical students are always available for advance booking and can be booked via our online appointment system. It is most helpful to us and the students if you are happy to see them. Please be aware you need to plan to be here for up to 40 mins - you will see the student for up to 20 mins and then the supervising GP will join the consultation for up to a further 20 minutes. The receptionist will always tell you if a medical student is sitting-in or running a surgery and of course if you do not wish to see a medical student that is entirely your choice please let reception know.
Thank you for your assistance in training the next generation!
