This general practice is a Training Practice.
We are proud to be a well-established training practice, helping qualified doctors, known as Foundation Year 2 doctors, complete their final stages of training.
We believe that achieving and maintaining training practice status enhances the quality of the medical care that we provide at the practice. It also enables patients to see a wider range of clinicians whilst allowing the surgery to benefit from the fresh ideas and approaches brought by young enthusiastic doctors. You can of course still elect to see your chosen regular doctor but sometimes this may require you to plan your appointment.
We have been a training practice for many years and the feedback from patients regarding our registrars has been overwhelmingly positive. The doctors tend to be with the practice for four months and become an integral part of the practice team and an invaluable resource for patients.
All patients at our practice are allocated a named GP and your named GP is responsible for the co-ordination of your care. Our patients have a named GP because it offers continuity for patients but you are free to see alternative GPs of your choice if you desire. From time to time we might offer an appointment with an alternative GP if we feel that their speciality is tailored towards your needs at the time.
If you are unsure who your allocated GP is, please don’t hesitate to contact the surgery. You may also change your named GP if you require.
