Our practice is a training/teaching practice. Our registrars are fully qualified and have a great deal of hospital experience. Registrars are attached to our practice for 6 to 12 months and usually become general practitioners after completing their training. They are at all times encouraged to seek advice when required from the practice partners.
When booking an appointment you may be asked if you would consult with one of our registrars.
We are also fortunate to be affiliated with Keele University and assist with the training of medical students in years 3 and 5 or their degrees. If you are seen by a medical student they will see you alone intially and then discuss your problem with a GP who will also assess you and help the medical student in forming a management plan.
If you do not wish to have the student present during your consultation, please inform the reception staff prior to seeing the doctor.
