We are a training practice and you may be offered an appointment with a GP registrar. These doctors are fully qualified and will have had experience in several hospital specialties. They are completing their specialist training as a GP.
We also teach medical students and sometimes you may be asked to see the doctor or nurse with a student present. You will always be asked beforehand if this is acceptable and you may ask for the student to withdraw if you prefer to have your consultation in private.
An increasing part of all undergraduate and postgraduate training is the use of video consultations. You will be advised when booking an appointment if the doctor will be videoing the consultation. Written consent is needed prior to seeing the doctor. The recording is used for teaching purposes only and can be deleted during or immediately after the consultation if you wish.
