Teaching & Training
As this is a teaching practice, from time to time doctors have students sitting in with them. The student may just be observing or may be filmed seeing patients. You may be asked if you would mind talking to a student or a student being present while you see the doctor.
If you do not feel comfortable about this please do not hesitate to tell the doctor and your wishes will be respected. Declining to see students will not affect your treatment. In addition, all practice members are encouraged to attend relevant training courses to improve standards of care.
This is a training practice and doctors who have experience of hospital work and wish to gain further experience in family medicine join the practice for a year. They work with the doctors in the practice sharing all aspects of patient care.
