Teaching & GP Registrars

We are a teaching practice and every 6 months there will be a change of GP Registrar, who is a qualified doctor attached to the Practice to gain experience in general practice.

On occasion patients may be asked to participate in a video recording of the consultation. Intimate physical examinations will not be recorded. The camera will be switched off on request at anytime during the consultation. The tape will be used for teaching purposes or to assess the doctor and will only be seen by persons who have legal access to your medical records. Patients’ notes will also be used for teaching purposes.
