GP registrars

These doctors are on a training scheme to become GPs working in both hospital and GP.


Foundation year 2 doctors

These doctors are in training posts at the hospital and come to the practice for 4 month rotations starting in Aug, Dec and April. They have experience from the hospital but have not worked in general practice before. One of the doctors at the surgery is available at all times to offer advice to our F2 doctors if they need it.


Locum GPs

During a doctor's annual holiday, a locum doctor may do a surgery and/or home visit. All our locums are fully trained doctors who specialise in general practice.


Medical Students

We are a teaching practice and medical students are with us from time to time in the surgery or accompanying doctors on calls. These students are engaged in a very important part of their medical training and patients' cooperation is extremely valuable and much appreciated. They are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors. You are free to choose not to have a student present. You will be informed if students are present and if you prefer to see the doctor alone simply mention this to the receptionist.
