We are an accredited associate training practice and firmly believe that having medical students and/or FY2 Doctors, be it for one day or for four months, is proving to be a great success.
They bring a fresh vibe to the Practice and help us keep up-to-date with new developments and innovations within hospital medicine. It is a very rewarding experience to have them with us, especially knowing that some of these trainees may very well go on to specialise in General Practice.
The Foundation Programme
This is a two-year training programme for doctors after leaving medical school. It is designed to provide the trainees with a range of experience prior to choosing their area of speciality.
The FY2 (Foundation Year 2) doctors spend a 4 month period with us where they will see patients by themselves, although our fully qualified GPs will always be available for them to ask any questions that may arise.
November 16 - We currently have a ST 1 and ST 3 GP Registrar vacancy
Medical students who spend time at our Practice are in their final year of study. If you are seen by a medical student there will ALWAYS be one of our fully qualified GPs or nurses with them.
You may have had a consultation with either a student (accompanied by a fully qualified GP/nurse) or an FY2 doctor in the past and we welcome your feedback on your experience. If you would prefer not to be seen by a medical student or FY2 doctor, please feel free to decline. This will not affect the treatment you receive at the surgery.
