The practice has been an accredited training centre since 2005, with Dr Brown, Dr Durrant and Dr Waters as our registered GP trainers.
Being a training practice involves the training of clinicians at a variety of levels, from medical students, still at university, to newly qualified doctors undertaking their foundation years and registrars moving towards qualification as General Practitioners.
The length of time a trainee would be with the practice depends upon their stage of training. Medical students are generally with us for a few weeks, whilst registrars may be at the surgery for up to a year.
Newly qualified doctors and registrars hold their own clinics, under the supervision of Dr Brown, Dr Durrant and Dr Waters whereas medical students assist the doctor during your consultation. This is tremendous experience for medical students; however, if you do not wish to have a student present during your consultation, please inform the reception staff prior to seeing your doctor.
