Doctors in Training
We are a training practice and you may be offered an appointment with one of our GP Registrars or Foundation doctors. Both are fully qualified graduate doctors with experience in hospital posts. They are able to prescribe medication, order tests and refer to hospital specialities.
GP trainers often hold joint surgeries with the trainee and you will be informed of this when booking. If you prefer to see your GP alone then please tell the receptionist. Training doctors are regularly monitored and assessed. If you have and comments good or bad, please inform the practice manager or your GP.
GP Registrars will have experience in several hospital disciplines. They spend between 12 and 18 months with us to specialise in General Practice. Part of the training involves analysis of video consultations and you may be asked to participate in one of these. This is entirely voluntary but saying “yes” will be a great help to us.

Foundation doctors have completed their medical degree and at least one year in 3 hospital specialities. They spend four months in General Practice. The experience is valuable for both a future career in General Practice or Hospital/community specialties.
