We are a Training Practice
This practice is an appointed general practitioner training practice and often benefits from the services of GP registrars. These are fully qualified doctors with extensive hospital experience who hope to enter general practice.
We currently have 4 registrars with us, Drs Crosby, Hyatt, Estall and Verma as well as a paramedic practitioner Waseem Shakir.
There may be times when the Registrar will be videoing their consultations for their learning program. This is a powerful tool in developing effective communication skills when viewed by their trainer alongside the Registrar and remains completely confidential.
We will always ask you for your permission and ask you to sign a consent form beforehand and then again after the consultation.
You will be given the choice to decline this offer, and your decision will be fully respected and will in no way affect the care you are given.
We are also a recognised Training practice for all aspects of Family Planning .
We run a Family Planning clinic on a Wednesday afternoon for patients of the practice led by Dr Janet While, a Fellow of the Faculty of Family Planning.
We have recently run a a new Diploma course at the practice for doctors in the south to take their Diploma in 'The course of 5' family planning which proved very successful.
Please read the account of one of our Registrars given to the Patient Participation Group. Hopefully it will make for an interesting read.
