General Practitioner Trainees/Students

Our practice is a training/teaching practice. Our trainee doctors are fully qualified and have a great deal of hospital experience. Trainee doctors are attached to our practice for six to twelve months and patients find their fresh, enthusiastic approach adds to the health care we provide. The trainee doctors usually become General Practitioner partners after completing their training, and are at all times encouraged to seek advice when required from the practice partners.

When booking an appointment you may be asked if you would like to consult with one of our trainee doctors. Our trainees are excellent doctors, appointed by the practice. We are confident that they will give our patients modern, effective and caring treatment.

We are fortunate to also have medical students attached for short periods to our practice. With the patient’s consent, they may be present at consultations with the partners and learn about general practice.

Student nurses are also attached to the nursing staff at times.
