We are a recognised training practice for general medical practitioners and often have GP Registrars attached to the practice. A GP Registrar is a qualified doctor who has worked for some years in hospitals. They are invited to join us for up to 12 months to gain valuable experience in General Practice. Registrars participate in weekly joint surgeries with a partner, as well as holding their own surgeries when they are ready. You will be told if any appointment offered is for a joint surgery. Please feel free to ask to see only one doctor if you prefer. As part of the training process consultations may be recorded on video from time to time.
You will be informed of this and we will only record your consultation with your consent.
On occasions, we accommodate medical students from the Peninsula Medical School to enable them to gain insight into general practice. You will be informed if this affects your consultation. This will always be a joint clinic where the medical student will see you first and then one of our GPs will see you after with the student. These appointments usually take about 20mins.
