A Training Practice
Our Practice is a recognised Training Practice and has a number of qualified 'GP Trainers' who participate in the training of doctors for work in General Practice. You may at times, be offered an appointment with a qualified doctor who is gaining experience in General Practice (Registrar) or asked if one may be present while you consult with your own doctor. You will be offered the opportunity to decline if you are not happy with this arrangement.
Occasionally between the hours of 12.30pm and 2.00pm we conduct staff training and meetings and our telephones may be switched over to our message handling system.
Quality Half Day Shutdown
Approximately three times a year the practice will hold a clinical teaching session which we called Quality Half Day. This protected time is used for various updates and training to take place. The practice employs locum GPs for this session to allow all GPs to attend and to minimise any disruption to patients care.
Emergency cover, as at weekends, and evenings is provided by NHS 111.
