TEACHING

GP REGISTRAR TRAINING PRACTICE

The practice is accredited as a training practice. This means a fully qualified doctor, training to specialise in general practice will be working at the practice. You may be offered an appointment with the GP registrar.


GP registrars need to video some of their consultations as part of their ongoing assessment and development. The video is confidential and would only be used for teaching purposes. You may be asked by the receptionists if you would like to take part. There is no obligation to agree to the video. If you do agree, you will always be asked at the beginning and end of the consultation whether you are happy for the video to be used. Dr Sian Williams and Dr Julian Ralph are the GP Registrar Trainers.
