We are a training practice, with one of our core values being the education and development of the next generation of doctors. We see this as being extremely important and as such we run an active teaching programme for both undergraduate medical students and post graduate doctors pursuing higher training to become specialists in general practice. We are very grateful to our patients for their active participation in this education. You also have the option to opt out of seeing a trainee if you want to.
Medical students and nurses also occasionally visit for teaching puposes and may sit with a doctor or nurse to observe a surgery. Sometimes we may videotape surgeries for training purposes, but confidentiality is strictly observed and your permission is sought. If you do not wish to have an observer or be videod please let the receptionist or doctor know at the time.
There are nine consulting rooms on ground floor and there is disabled access to a toilet at Guilderfield Road site, and a lift at Baldry Gardens site that provides access to teh first floor consulting rooms.

Pollen counts are highest in the morning and the early evening. It is best to avoid being outdoors at these times. There are 3 types of medicine helpful in hayfever: eye drops (sodium cromoglicate), nasal spray (beclometasone) and antihistamines (e.g. cetirizine, loratadine etc).
Antihistamines work best if taken regularly on a daily basis as their effect builds up over time. All of these are available from pharmacies and supermarkets. You may request supplies on prescription by filling in a request and dropping it into us, or by emailing your request. The prescription will be available 2 days later at Guildersfield Road surgery.
