General Practitioner Registrars and Students
Our practice is a training and teaching practice. Dr Kay-Worrall is our qualified trainer and she undertakes the training of our Registrars. Our Registrars are fully qualified and have a great deal of hospital experience. Registrars are usually attached to our practice for 6 to 12 months and patients find their fresh, enthusiastic approach adds to the health care we provide. The Registrars usually become GPs after completing their training, and are at all times encouraged to seek advice when required from their supervisors and the other more experienced GPs in the practice. We also teach Foundation Year 2 Doctors, 1st/3rd/5th year Medical students and Pharmacy students. The Foundation Year 2 students are usually attached for a four-month period, currently Dr Shuyang Xia is with us until December 2018. Dr Bamford and Dr Lund (was Hewitt) are both Foundation Year 2 trainers. Visual recordings of consultations are used for teaching purposes. You will be asked to sign for consent before being filmed, and can be rest assured that all films are erased after use. Currently head Dr Clare Francis is the GP Registrar with the practice.
When booking an appointment you may be asked if you would consult with one of our Registrars who are excellent Doctors, appointed by the practice. We are confident that they will give our patients modern, effective caring treatment.
