Trainee GPs

GP registrars are active team members with a full part in the work of the surgeries, seeing patients, doing telephone consultations, home visits and attending practice meetings. They tend to have 4-12 month placements with the surgery. Their work is supervised by our approved GP trainer (Dr Zaklama), but you will find much of the time they are consulting patients independently. It is a vital part of their learning that they experience the various challenges of general practice, in addition to regular joint/observed surgeries and teaching sessions with their trainers. You may be asked for your permission to video your consultation (excluding clinical examinations) in order that this recording can be used in a teaching session between GP trainer and GP registrar. These recordings are deleted immediately after use, and permission can be refused prior to OR after a recording has taken place. Your refusal will not affect your treatment in any way. You will be informed at the point of booking your appointment if your consultation will be with a GP registrar. You can still choose to consult with another doctor of your choosing at the practice, but to do so may require you to wait longer for a consultation. We would stress that all aspects of general practice, including training, are governed by rules of strict confidentiality
