We are a training practice and we normally have two fully qualified doctors working with us who are gaining experience in general practice – an F2 (Foundation Year 2) doctor and a registrar. Because of this, our medical notes may be examined by visiting senior doctors. You also have the option to opt out of seeing a trainee if you wanted to.

Medical students and nurses also occasionally visit for teaching purposes 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 videoed please let the receptionist or doctor know at the time.
