GP Training

We have been approved as a training practice since 1996.

 The GP Trainee is a fully qualified and experienced doctor near the end of their
 training to be a GP. We will usually have at least one trainee working with
 us as they gain experience in general practice.
 Trainee doctors do a variety of jobs in hospital before spending either six or twelve
 months with us. As part of the training they require to video record several
 consultations and sometimes we do joint consultations with them.

 Your permission for this will always be sought in advance.

 Our current trainee GPs are Dr Maeve Chestnutt and Dr Carla Trivers.
