GP Trainees and Medical Students
The surgery has been accredited by the Royal College of GPs and Northwest Deanery as a teaching and training practice for medical students, FY2 trainees and GP trainees.
We are a training practice involved in the training of future General Practitioners. These are mostly doctors who have completed their hospital-based training and are spending the final years in General Practice working towards their final GP exams (ST3). We are also involved in training both doctors at earlier stages and medical students, all of whom are closely supervised. Trainees have full access to patients’ medical records. This is essential for the purpose of training and patient care. The strict rules of confidentiality are adhered to at all times throughout the whole practice. Videoing of consultations is an important part of training and assessment. If the appointment you are attending is part of a surgery being videoed, you will be advised of this beforehand and of course you will be free to decline.
